The View provider is an instance and method provider that creates new classes based on instances of other classes. You can use the View provider to take properties from different source classes, different namespaces, or different computers and combine the properties as a single class.
For more information about the qualifiers use to define View provider classes, see Qualifiers Specific to the View Provider.
For more information about views, see Linking Classes Together.
Two versions of the View provider are available on 64-bit platforms starting with Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1). For more information, see Getting and Providing Data on a 64-bit Computer.
Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, Windows XP, and Windows Me/98/95: Only the 32-bit version of the View provider is available.
