Win32_EnvironmentSpecification class

The Win32_EnvironmentSpecification WMI class contains information about any environment variables that must be registered for their associated products installation.

Note  For more information about support or requirements for installation on a specific operating system, see Operating System Availability of WMI Components.

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

  string  Environment;
  string  Name;
  string  SoftwareElementID;
  uint16  SoftwareElementState;
