For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
Start by using the debugger: put a breakpoint on the first line in the function, and run your code through the debugger. Then look at your code, and at your data and work out what should happen manually. Then single step each line checking that what you expected to happen is exactly what did. When it isn't, that's when you have a problem, and you can back-track (or run it again and look more closely) to find out why. You need to find out which argument is out of range, and what the valid range is - until you have that, you can't start looking at why it's out of range!
Sorry, but we can't do that for you - time for you to learn a new (and very, very useful) skill: debugging!

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
you fooled yourself by using a lot of redundant brackets. The compiler doesn't mind, but you lost track of what is inside the inner for loop and what isn't.
Once you fix the problem, you'll find out you're not there yet, as Write() or WriteLine() will use whatever number of positions is required to represent the number, so the table may well be badly aligned. If so, start looking at some overloads of int.ToString().
In your variable declarations, change "ManagementQuery" to "ObjectQuery". You cannot declare an instance variable as an abstract class type and then start calling methods and setting properties on it as the abstract class won't have implementations of those properties and methods.
Hi Dave and Richard, thank you for checking my code.
Richard yes that is error I’m getting and thank you trying Dave.
I’m stuck and will have to check Microsoft links tomorrow at work like I said it is my first time and I’m stuck and don’t understand.
Dave since you tried and saw the errors would you be kind to highlight where I’m going wrong so that I can learn from please but if you think it’s better to read the links then I would do that but if I’m not mistaken I got some of the code from Microsoft to understand and I tried but without success.
