PrecertifyParams class

[The AD RMS SDK leveraging functionality exposed by the client in Msdrm.dll is available for use in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, and Windows 8. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Active Directory Rights Management Services SDK 2.1, which leverages functionality exposed by the client in Msipc.dll.]

The PrecertifyParams SOAP data type contains information required by the PreCertify SOAP web method.


This SOAP data type is documented as if it were used in a .NET Framework XML web service client. For more information about creating an XML web service client, see Building XML Web Service Clients and Accessing XML Web Services in Managed Code.


The AcquirePreLicenseParams class is derived from System.Object.
