Found WMI_Collector.exe already available under MID server agent install location: C:\servicenow\mid\agent\bin\sw_wmi\bin. However, upon running wmi_collector.exe manually it could not find service listed. Please refer below error screenshot.
In order to fix this issue, Manually create the service from MID Server host machine in command prompt.
Command: sc.exe create "ServiceNow WMI Collector" binPath= C:\servicenow\mid\agent\bin\sw_wmi\bin\wmi_collector.exe start= auto
