Win32_DirectorySpecification class

The Win32_DirectorySpecification class represents the directory layout for the product. Each instance of the class represents a directory in both the source image and the destination image.

Directory resolution is performed as follows:

  • Root destination directories: The root directory entries are those with a null Directory_Parent value or a Directory_Parent value identical to the Directory value. The value in the Directory property is interpreted as the name of a property defining the location of the destination directory. If the property is defined, the destination directory is resolved to the property's value. If the property is undefined, the ROOTDRIVE property is used instead to resolve the path.
  • Root source directories: The value of the DefaultDir column for root entries is interpreted as the name of a property defining the source location of this directory. This property must be defined or an error will occur.
  • Nonroot destination directories: The Directory value for a nonroot directory is also interpreted as the name of a property defining the location of the destination. If the property is defined, the destination directory is resolved to the property's value. If the property is not defined, the destination directory is resolved to a subdirectory beneath the resolved destination directory for the Directory_Parent entry. The DefaultDir value defines the name of the subdirectory.
  • Nonroot source directories: The source directory for a nonroot directory is resolved to a subdirectory of the resolved source directory for the Directory_Parent entry. Again, the DefaultDir value defines the name of the subdirectory.

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.

Properties

The Win32_DirectorySpecification class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short description of the object.

CheckID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
