Installing SQL Server Dev Config Manager (Snap in)

Hi All,
It seems SQL Server's Dev 2017 config manager does not come " built in" within , and it is now a snap in. When I try to install it through Control Panel, I get the error message: Cannot connect to WMI provider. You do not have permission or the server is unreachable.

Suggests as a work around to go to the command line and enter:
mofcomp "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft SQL Server\number\Shared\sqlmgmproviderxpsp2up.mof" (**)

Where number is in the list given. BUT no numbers are assigned for versions after 2012. In my Microsoft SQL Server folder I have subfolders numbered 80,90, 110, 120, 140.


It would seem I should use 140 as a number in (**) above.
Is this correct?

In the page linked above, it says that the problem comes from having a 32-bit instance and another 64-bit instance, but both my instances are 64-bit.

EDIT: While we're at it, if someone knows how to filter within Profiler, I would appreciate any advice on how to do it.
