If the following errors look like what you are experiencing, you ‘might’ be able to fix it by following the instructions in this post:
wmic (from Linux – if installed)

WMIC is a useful tool in the world of remote management, and more specifically tracking the performance of Windows machines, so I thought I’d show how I got it installed on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS – Desktop. This should work fine on most other versions of Ubuntu as well, but please comment if it did not.
