WMI queries from c++

WMIC commands may be monitored by defenses like script-block logging and command line logging. Instead, we can achieve the same with WMI queries in c++.
Here is a code sample which gets some information about AV and the ussername of the desktop. It should be noted that the code below is very barebones and does not follow the regular coding standards from Microsoft.
#include <Windows.h>
#include <atlbase.h>
#include <wbemidl.h>
#pragma comment(lib, "wbemuuid.lib")
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
CComPtr<IWbemLocator> pWbemLocator;
CComPtr<IWbemServices> pWbemServices;
CComPtr<IEnumWbemClassObject> pEnum;

ULONG uObjectCount = 0;
CoInitialize(NULL);

pWbemLocator.CoCreateInstance(CLSID_WbemLocator);
pWbemLocator->ConnectServer(CComBSTR(L"root\\securitycenter2"), NULL, NULL, 0, NULL, 0, NULL, &pWbemServices);
