Win32_LogicalProgramGroup class

The Win32_LogicalProgramGroup WMI class represents a program group in a computer system running Windows. For example, Accessories or Startup.

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

Properties

The Win32_LogicalProgramGroup class has these properties.

Caption

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (64), DisplayName ("Caption")

A short textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

A textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

GroupName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32API|CWbemProviderGlue Class Methods|GetAllInstances")

Name of the Windows program group. Program groups are implemented as file folders in Win32.

Example: "Accessories\System Tools"

InstallDate

Data type: datetime

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|ComponentID|001.5"), DisplayName ("Install Date")

Indicates when the object was installed. Lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Override ("Name"), key, MaxLen (256), MappingStrings ("Win32API|CWbemProviderGlue Class Methods|GetAllInstances")

User-assigned name followed by the group name. Program groups are implemented as file folders in Win32.

Example: "All Users:Accessories\System Tools"

Status

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MaxLen (10), DisplayName ("Status")

String that indicates the current status of the object. Operational and non-operational status can be defined. Operational status can include "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element is functioning properly, but is predicting a failure (for example, a SMART-enabled hard disk drive).

Non-operational status can include "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". "Service" can apply during disk mirror-resilvering, reloading a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is online, but the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

OK ("OK")

Error ("Error")

Degraded ("Degraded")

Unknown ("Unknown")

Pred Fail ("Pred Fail")

Starting ("Starting")

Stopping ("Stopping")

Service ("Service")

Stressed ("Stressed")

NonRecover ("NonRecover")

No Contact ("No Contact")

Lost Comm ("Lost Comm")

UserName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32API|CWbemProviderGlue Class Methods|GetAllInstances")

Users who can access the Windows program group. Program groups are implemented as file folders in Win32.

Example: "All Users"

Remarks

The Win32_LogicalProgramGroup class is derived from Win32_ProgramGroupOrItem.

The calling process that uses this class must have the SE_RESTORE_NAME privilege on the computer in which the registry resides. For example, if you enumerate this class on the local computer, the account under which your application runs must have this privilege. For more information, see Executing Privileged Operations.
