WMIREGINFO structure

The WMIREGINFO structure contains information provided by a driver to register or update its data blocks and event blocks.

Syntax


typedef struct {
  ULONG       BufferSize;
  ULONG       NextWmiRegInfo;
  ULONG       RegistryPath;
  ULONG       MofResourceName;
  ULONG       GuidCount;
  WMIREGGUIDW WmiRegGuid[];
} WMIREGINFO, *PWMIREGINFO;

Members

BufferSize

Indicates the total size of the WMI registration data associated with this WMIREGINFO structure, calculated as follows: (sizeof(WMIREGINFO) + (GuidCount * sizeof(WMIREGGUID) + additionaldata). Additional data might include items such as the MOF resource name, registry path, and static instance names for blocks.

NextWmiRegInfo

If a driver handles WMI requests on behalf of another driver, as a class driver might on behalf of a miniclass driver, NextWmiRegInfo indicates the offset in bytes from the beginning of this WMIREGINFO to the next WMIREGINFO structure that contains WMI registration information for the other driver. Otherwise, NextWmiRegInfo is zero.

RegistryPath

Indicates the offset in bytes from the beginning of this structure to a counted Unicode string that specifies the registry path passed to the driver's DriverEntry routine. The string must be aligned on a USHORT boundary. This member should be set only in response to a WMI registration request (IRP_MN_REGINFO or IRP_MN_REGINFO_EX with Parameters.WMI.DataPath set to WMIREGISTER).

MofResourceName

Indicates the offset in bytes from the beginning of this structure to a counted Unicode string that specifies the name of the MOF resource in the driver's image file. The string must be aligned on a USHORT boundary. This member should be set only in response to a WMI registration request (IRP_MN_REGINFO or IRP_MN_REGINFO_EX with Parameters.WMI.DataPath set to WMIREGISTER).

GuidCount

Indicates the number of WMIREGGUID structures in the array at WmiRegGuid.

WmiRegGuid

Is an array of GuidCount WMIREGGUID structures.

Remarks

In response to a registration request (IRP_MN_REGINFO or IRP_MN_REGINFO_EX with Parameters.WMI.DataPath set to WMIREGISTER), a driver builds at least one WMIREGINFO structure and writes the WMIREGINFO structure to the buffer at IrpStack->Parameters.WMI.Buffer. The WMIREGINFO structure contains an array of WMIREGGUID structures, one for each data block or event block exposed by the driver.

If the driver handles WMI requests on behalf of another driver, it builds another WMIREGINFO containing an array of WMIREGGUID structures for each block exposed by the other driver, sets the NextWmiRegInfo member of the first WMIREGINFO to an offset in bytes from the beginning of the first WMIREGINFO to the beginning of the next WMIREGINFO in the buffer, and writes both structures to the buffer. The driver indicates the total size of both WMIREGINFO structures and associated data when calls IoCompleteRequest to complete the IRP.

A driver can use the same WMIREGINFO structure(s) to remove or update blocks in response to an update request (IRP_MN_REGINFO or IRP_MN_REGINFO_EX with Parameters.WMI.DataPath set to WMIUPDATE). If WMIREG_FLAG_REMOVE_GUID is set in the Flags member of a WMIREGGUID, WMI removes that block from the list of blocks previously registered by the driver. If WMIREG_FLAG_REMOVE_GUID is clear, WMI updates registration information for that block only if other WMIREGGUID members have changed—otherwise, WMI does not change to its registration information for that block.
