IFunctionDiscoveryProvider::InstancePropertyStoreOpen method (functiondiscoveryprovider.h)

[Function Discovery is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions.]

Opens the property store of the provider. This method is called whenever IFunctionInstance::OpenPropertyStore is called if the provider did not provide a property store at creation time. The provider can provide the property store at this time, or handle the IProviderProperties methods as they are called.
