Win32_RegistryAction class

The Win32_RegistryAction WMI class sets up registry information that the application requires in the system registry. The registry information is gated by the component class. A registry value is written to the system registry if the corresponding component has been set to be installed either locally or run from source.

Note  For more information about support or requirements for installation on a specific operating system, see Operating System Availability of WMI Components.
