Win32_LoadOrderGroup class

The Win32_LoadOrderGroup WMI class represents a group of system services that define execution dependencies. The services must be initiated in the order specified by the Load Order Group, as the services are dependent on each other. These dependent services require the presence of the antecedent services to function correctly. The data in this class is derived by the provider from the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ServiceGroupOrder.

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.


[Provider("CIMWin32")]class Win32_LoadOrderGroup : CIM_LogicalElement
  string   Caption;
  string   Description;
  boolean  DriverEnabled;
  uint32   GroupOrder;
  datetime InstallDate;
  string   Name;
  string   Status;


The Win32_LoadOrderGroup class has these types of members:


The Win32_LoadOrderGroup class has these properties.

Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short description of the object.

Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Description of the object.

Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Indicates whether this load order group can include drivers along with system services.

Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Sequence in which this group of services is loaded onto the operating system.

Example: 2

Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

Date object was installed. This property does not require a value to indicate that the object is installed.

Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Name of the load order group.

Example: "Primary disk"

Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Current status of the object. Various operational and nonoperational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses include: "OK", "Degraded", and "Pred Fail" (an element, such as a SMART-enabled hard disk drive, may function properly but predicts a failure in the near future). Nonoperational statuses include: "Error", "Starting", "Stopping", and "Service". The "Service" status applies to administrative work, such as mirror-resilvering of a disk or reload of a user permissions list. Not all such work is online, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.

The values are:

"Pred Fail"


The Win32_LoadOrderGroup class is derived from CIM_LogicalElement.
