I purchased the Windows 8.1 iso and am trying to create a bootable USB using the iso file. When I attempt to launch Easy USB Creator the program fails to launch. In Event Viewer I receive multiple errors. The first error is a .NET runtime error with the following description:
Application: UsbCreator.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.Management.ManagementException
Stack:
at System.Management.ManagementException.ThrowWithExtendedInfo(System.Management.ManagementStatus)
at System.Management.ManagementEventWatcher.Start()
at ...ctor(.)
at ...ctor()
at ..()
This is followed by an Application Error and a WMI error. I have also attempted to use EasyBCD 2.3 and received a similar error (.NET runtime error). I am not sure what to do at this point to get Easy USB creator to work. I have tried using other USB creator products with the ISO file with no luck. Please Advise.

Is the WMI service running on your PC?
