Two new features are now available on the ECE site- Enhanced Write Filter Provider and File Based Write Filter Provider.
These new components provide access to the respective Write Filter API through the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) layer. The goal of each feature is to expose the full functionality of the Write Filter to all .NET languages as well as to the Windows Scripting Host. Furthermore, the Write Filter Providers enables remote management of the Enhanced Write Filter or File Based Write Filter.
The new features are rolled into the Window Embedded Standard 2009 February 2011 Feature Update and are also available for Windows XP Embedded SP3. These can be imported into the product database.

Great to hear but i think a little detail or example of the provider and its properties/methods for those who are new to WMI may be helpfull.
- Name of the providers?
- Methods available?
- Properties available?
What about PowerShell?
Is WMI support available in WES7?
Technical reference/documentation for the providers including classes, methods, and properties as well as samples using both PowerShell and VB script are at MSDN link (msdn.microsoft.com/.../gg723542(v=WinEmbedded.1001).aspx)
Write Filter WMI providers for WES7 SP1 have been released last week per this blog post (blogs.msdn.com/.../the-first-feature-update-for-windows-embedded-standard-7-sp1-is-now-available-on-ece.aspx)
