Return Value

Returns SystemState.


The SystemState enumeration defines items on a system that may be used by assessments. These settings can be read and modified. The original values of modified settings are saved in the fileName file. The system state can be restored by calling RestoreAll to reverse any configuration changes made through SetBoolean. Any changes made by manually modifying underlying OS structures are not stored. This method binds the SystemStateinterface to a specific filename where the modified settings will be stored.
