Win32_Registry class

The Win32_RegistryWMI class represents the system registry on a computer system running Windows.

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.

Syntax

[Dynamic, Provider("CIMWin32"), SupportsUpdate, UUID("{8502C4D7-5FBB-11D2-AAC1-006008C78BC7}"), AMENDMENT]
class Win32_Registry : CIM_LogicalElement
{
  string   Caption;
  string   Description;
  datetime InstallDate;
  string   Status;
  uint32   CurrentSize;
  uint32   MaximumSize;
  string   Name;
  uint32   ProposedSize;
};

Members

The Win32_Registry class has these types of members:

Properties

The Win32_Registry 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.

CurrentSize

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32API|NTDLL.DLL|NtQuerySystemInformation|SystemRegistryQuotaInformation"), Units ("megabytes")

Current physical size of the Windows registry.

Example: 10

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

A textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

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.

MaximumSize

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control|RegistrySizeLimit"), Units ("megabytes")

Maximum size of the Windows registry. If the system is successful in using the ProposedSize property, MaximumSize should contain the same value.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: key, Override ("Name"), MappingStrings ("Win32Registry")

Name of the Windows registry. The maximum length is 256 characters.

ProposedSize

Data type: uint32

Access type: Read/write

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("Win32Registry|SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control|RegistrySizeLimit"), Units ("megabytes")

Proposed size of the Windows registry. It is the only registry setting that can be modified, and its proposal is attempted the next time the system boots.

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")

Remarks

The Win32_Registry class is derived from CIM_LogicalElement.
