WindowsInfo XML Document

This document contains data that specifies the display actions that the operating system performs for the specified device in the device metadata package. These actions include the following:

  • Whether the device icon is displayed when the device is in a disconnected state, such as when the user removes the device. This action is specified by the ShowDeviceInDisconnectedState XML element within the WindowsInfo XML document.

  • Whether a Device Stage user interface appears when the device transitions from a disconnected state to a connected state, such as when the user plugs in the device. This action is specified by the LaunchDeviceStageOnDeviceConnect XML element within the WindowsInfo XML document.

  • Whether a Device Stage user interface is started when the user double-clicks the device icon that appears in either the Devices and Printers user interface or in Windows Explorer. This action is specified by the LaunchDeviceStageFromExplorer XML element within the WindowsInfo XML document.

Each device metadata package must contain only one WindowsInfo XML document. The name of the document must be WindowsInfo.xml.

The data in the WindowsInfo XML document is formatted based on the WindowsInfo XML Schema.
