CIM_DirectorySpecification class

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class captures the major directory structure of a software element. This class is used to organize the files of a software element into manageable units that can be relocated on a computer system.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.

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

Syntax

class CIM_DirectorySpecification
{
  string  Caption;
  string  CheckID;
  boolean CheckMode;
  string  Description;
  string  DirectoryPath;
  uint16  DirectoryType;
  string  Name;
  string  SoftwareElementID;
  uint16  SoftwareElementState;
  uint16  TargetOperatingSystem;
  string  Version;
};

Members

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these types of members:

Methods

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these methods.

MethodDescription
Invoke

Evaluates a particular check. Not implemented by WMI.

 

Properties

The CIM_DirectorySpecification class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short textual description of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Identifier used in conjunction with other keys to uniquely identify the check. This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckMode
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Specifies whether the condition is expected to exist in the environment. If TRUE, the condition is expected to exist (for example, a file should be on a system, so the Invoke method should return TRUE). If FALSE, the condition should not exist (for example, if a file should not be on a system, the Invoke method should return FALSE). This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Description of the objects. This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

DirectoryPath
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Directory name. The value supplied by an application provider is a default or recommended path name. The value can be changed for a particular environment.

DirectoryType
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Type of directory being described.
