Subject: [wix-devs] FirewallException to winmgmt (WMI In)

This is probably something Rob can comment on.

I've been using FirewallException [1] to add firewall exception rules to my application.

Now it feels like this element is somewhat limited in the sense that I *cannot* add a firewall exception for WMI, namely to:
Name: Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI-In)
Description: Inbound rule to allow WMI traffic for remote Windows Management Instrumentation. [TCP]

bound to service winmgmt (Windows Management Instrumentation)

A little googling shows a feature request [2] to allow firewall exceptions for builtin service, but I don't know what's the status of it and whether or not it was ever implemented / merged to the codebase.

Any idea what's the status on this request, or how can I add firewall exception to winmgmt?
