Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

The SMS_Program Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in Configuration Manager, that represents a program or command to run when software is distributed to a client computer.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.

The SMS_Program class does not define any methods.

ActionInProgress
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: [read, enumeration, ResID(733), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll"), ResIDValueLookup("ActionInProgress")]

Current action being performed on the package that is associated with the program by Configuration Manager. Possible values are:

 

Value Description

0

NONE

1

UPDATE

2

ADD

3

DELETE

Use this property in a WHERE clause to filter out programs that have been marked for deletion but have not yet been deleted. For more information, see the Remarks section later in this topic.

ApplicationHierarchy
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(911), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

The application hierarchy for the program. The default value is "".

CommandLine
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(904), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

The command line that runs when the program is started. The default value is "".

Comment
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(905), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Comment that describes the program in the Configuration Manager console. The default value is "".

DependentProgram
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(907), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

A formatted text string defining any program that should be run prior to running this program. The format is defined as <PackageID>;;<ProgramName>. If the program is in the same package, the calling application can simply specify ;;<ProgramName>. The default value is "".

The dependency is maintained only for the first time that the program runs. After the program has run, the dependency is ignored. For example, you cannot create a recurring scheduled job for which the dependency is maintained for each program run.

Description
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(903), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Not used.

DeviceFlags
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(918), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Flags describing the device associated with the program. Possible values are:

 

Hex (Bit) Description

0x01000000 (24)

Always assign program to the client.

0x02000000 (25)

Assign only if the device is currently connected to a high-bandwidth connection (default above 60 KBps).

0x04000000 (26)

Assign only if the device is docked, that is, it is attached to a desktop that is using ActiveSync.

DiskSpaceReq
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(915),ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Approximate disk space that the program requires. The format is "<size> <KB|MB|GB>". The default value is "".

This information is used in the Configuration Manager console and the advertisement to provide alerts about program disk space requirements. The user can then decide to accept the advertisement or perform some disk management task first.

DriveLetter
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [SizeLimit("1"), Range("a-z"), ResID(908), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Drive letter (one character in the range a-z) that the program maps to and runs from. The default value is "".

Duration
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(916), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

The approximate duration, in minutes, of program execution on the client computer. Specify this value as a whole number greater than or equal to 0 (default) or as Unknown (not recommended). If the property is set to Unknown, Configuration Manager sets the maximum allowed run time as 720 minutes (12 hours). For additional information, see the Remarks section later in this topic.

noteNote
On client computers, the specified value for published programs appears in Run Advertised Programs in Control Panel.

ExtendedData
Data type: UInt8 Array

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(919), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll"), large, lazy]

Qualifiers: [lazy, ResID(912), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Size, in bytes, of the program icon. Set this property to 0 to clear the icon.

ISVData
Data type: UInt8 Array

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(923), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll"), large, lazy]

Information that allows a single ISV to store data relating to an SMS_Program object.

There are no restrictions or defined formats for the ISV data. However, it is important to not overwrite the property after the ISV ownership has been established. Your application should read the existing data in this property first. If the data does not belong to the application, it should not be modified. You should include an identifier in the data for the program so that ownership can be established easily.

The location from which the program runs. The default value is "".

The working directory can be an absolute path on the client or a path relative to the distribution point folder that contains the package. If a working directory is not specified, Configuration Manager uses the default distribution point folder.

There are no special class qualifiers for this class. For more information about both the class qualifiers and the property qualifiers included in the Properties section, see Configuration Manager Class and Property Qualifiers.

A program is always associated with a parent package and typically represents the installation program for the package. Note that more than one program can be associated with the same package. The application uses the PackageID property to make this association. Your application cannot change this property after the SMS_Program object is created. To associate the program with a different package, the application must delete the object and create a new object with a new PackageID value.

When your application deletes an SMS_Program object, it is not deleted until its related components, such as its advertisements, are deleted. Instead, Configuration Manager sets the ActionInProgress property to DELETE (3) to mark the program for deletion. To ensure that a query does not retrieve programs that have been marked for deletion, add this case to the WHERE clause.

ImportantImportant
If you are using maintenance windows for the collection on which the program is run, a conflict can occur if the value of the Duration property is longer than the scheduled maintenance window. If this property is set to Unknown, the program starts during the maintenance window, but continues to run until it completes or fails after the maintenance window is closed.

It is recommended that you not set the Duration property to Unknown because this property is used for the following two important purposes:

  • To monitor the results of the program.

  • To determine if the program will be launched when maintenance windows have been defined on the client computers.

If your application sets the Duration property but program run time exceeds this duration, then Configuration Manager stops monitoring the program but doesn't terminate the program. This allows Configuration Manager to continue with other software distribution functions, such as running other advertised programs. The manager does not:

  • Stop the program.

  • Free any drives that have been mapped for the advertised program.

  • Free any network connections made for the advertised program.

  • Free operating system resources used by Configuration Manager when advertised programs are running.
