CIM_Product class

The CIM_Product class is a concrete class that represents a collection of physical elements, software features and, other products, acquired as a unit. Acquisition implies an agreement between the supplier and consumer, which can have implications on product licensing, support, and warranty.

Important

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of its inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.
