CIM_DirectorySpecification class

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class captures the major directory structure of a software element. This class is used to organize the files of a software element into manageable units that can be relocated on a computer system.

Important

The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

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

Syntax

[UUID("{A524EE6E-DB29-11d2-85FC-0000F8102E5F}"), abstract, AMENDMENT]

  string  CheckID;
  string  Caption;
  string  Description;
  boolean CheckMode;
  string  Name;
  uint16  TargetOperatingSystem;
  string  Version;
  string  SoftwareElementID;

Members

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these types of members:

Methods

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these methods.

Method Description
Invoke Evaluates a particular check. This method is not implemented by WMI.

Properties

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these properties.

Caption

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Maxlen (64)

A short textual description of the subject.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckID

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: key, maxlen (256)

Identifier used in conjunction with other keys to uniquely identify the check.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckMode

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the condition is expected to exist in the environment. For example, a file is expected to be on a system, so the Invoke method should return TRUE.

If FALSE, the condition is not expected to exist. For example, a file is not on a system, so the Invoke method should return FALSE.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

Description

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

A description of the objects.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

DirectoryPath

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Maxlen (1024)

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

Deployable (0)

Describes the details necessary for successful distribution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the installable state (that is, the next state).

Installable (1)

Describes the details necessary for successful installation and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the executable state (that is, the next state).

Executable (2)

Describes the details necessary for successful execution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the running state (that is, the next state).

Running (3)

Describes the details necessary to monitor and operate on a start element.
