ManagementClass Class

Definition

Represents a Common Information Model (CIM) management class. A management class is a WMI class such as Win32_LogicalDisk, which can represent a disk drive, and Win32_Process, which represents a process such as Notepad.exe. The members of this class enable you to access WMI data using a specific WMI class path. For more information, see "Win32 Classes" in the Windows Management Instrumentation documentation in the MSDN Library at https://msdn.microsoft.com/library.
