IGPEInformation interface

The IGPEInformation interface provides methods for Microsoft Management Console (MMC) extension snap-ins to communicate with the Group Policy Object Editor. For more information about MMC, see the Microsoft Management Console.

Note that this interface does not support multithreaded object concurrency.


The IGPEInformation interface has these methods.

IGPEInformation::GetDisplayName The GetDisplayName method retrieves the display name for the GPO.
IGPEInformation::GetDSPath The GetDSPath method retrieves the Active Directory path for the specified section of the GPO.
IGPEInformation::GetFileSysPath The GetFileSysPath method returns the file system path for the specified section of the GPO. The path is in UNC format.
IGPEInformation::GetHint The GetHint method retrieves the type of Active Directory object to which this GPO can be linked.
