CimNavigator is a client application program that can be used to create/update/delete arbitrary CIM objects (including associations) in CIM Object Managers. In addition, the program can be used to graphically navigate the associations between CIM objects.

Important, please read!

The good news is that a new version of the CimNavigator binary is now available. The bad news is that I am now charging a (small) fee for it. You are welcome to download the software and use it for an evaluation period of up to 30 days. After 30 days you are obligated to pay for it or you must remove it from your system.

Please review the CimNavigator license before downloading.
Information about registration may be found here.

Upgrade Note: If you unzip this file in the same directory as a previous installation of CimNavigator, the configuration files in the config directory: Aliases.txt, BranchAssocClasses.txt, and BranchObjectClasses.txt will be overwritten. Thus, any configurations that have been made regarding the selection of which object and association classes will be displayed, and their display names/icons will be lost. It is therefore suggested that the above files be renamed (perhaps with a .bak extension) or backed up to another directory before installing the latest version. Once the new version is installed, the default configuration files can be replaced with the backed up or renamed versions.

Anyone who has previously registered CimNavigator should be able to use their existing registration key with this version.

CimNavigator version 1.1.0.F may be downloaded here.
