Win32_CIMLogicalDeviceCIMDataFile class

The Win32_CIMLogicalDeviceCIMDataFile association WMI class relates logical devices and data files, indicating the driver files used by the device. This class is used to discover which device drivers a device uses.

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