Win32_ProgramGroup class

The Win32_ProgramGroupWMI class represents a program group in a computer system running Windows. This class is not available or supported. Instead, use Win32_LogicalProgramGroup.

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

{
  string Caption;
  string Description;
  string GroupName;
