RsopLoggingModeProvider class

The RSoP MMC snap-in (rsop.msc) calls the methods of the WMI RsopLoggingModeProvider class to take a snapshot of the policy data that is present on a computer. If you call the RsopCreateSession method to take a snapshot of the policy data, this allows the snap-in to display the data before the system overwrites or deletes it during a refresh of policy. The Winlogon process for Group Policy refreshes the data periodically.

RsopEnumerateUsers Static, Implemented
