Win32_WindowsProductActivation class

The Win32_WindowsProductActivationWMI class contains properties and methods related to Windows Product Activation (WPA), such as activation state and grace period. This class also provides the ability to activate the customer's computer online and offline.

The following syntax is simplified from MOF code and includes all of the inherited properties, but excludes methods. For reference information about methods, see the table of methods later in this topic.

Note  This class is not supported on platforms beyond Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 R2. On those platforms, it is recommended that you use the Software Licensing Classes instead.
