Subject: [wix-devs] FirewallException to winmgmt (WMI In)
This is probably something Rob can comment on.
I've been using FirewallException  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  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?
