Win32_PnPDevice class

The Win32_PnPDevice association WMI class relates a device (known to Configuration Manager as a PNPEntity) and the function it performs. Its function is represented by a subclass of the logical device that describes its use. For example, a Win32_Keyboard or Win32_DiskDrive instance. Both referenced objects represent the same underlying system device; changes to resource allocation on the PNPEntity side will effect the associated device.

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.
