You may encounter this error message when starting up XSplit VCam as a result of a corrupted/disabled WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation).

Confirm if WMI is Broken

1. Go to Start > Run then enter WMIMGMT.MSC

2. Right-click on WMI Control (Local) and click Properties

3. Check the General Tab

  • WMI is confirmed as NOT working properly if it shows it has failed to initialize all required WMI classes (Invalid class error).
