Win32_IniFileSpecification class

The Win32_IniFileSpecificationWMI class contains the .INI information that an application needs to set in an .INI file. The .INI file information is written out when the corresponding component is selected for installation—locally or from the source.

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

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

Members

The Win32_IniFileSpecification class has these types of members:

Methods

The Win32_IniFileSpecification class has these methods.

MethodDescription
Invoke

Evaluates a specific check. The details of how the method evaluates a specific check in a CIM context are described by the nonabstract CIM_Check subclasses.

 

Properties

The Win32_IniFileSpecification class has these properties.

Action
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Type of modification made.

ValueMeaning
0 (0x0)

Creates or updates an .ini entry.

1 (0x1)

Creates an .ini entry only if the entry does not already exist.

3 (0x3)

Creates a new entry or appends a new comma-separated value to an existing entry.

 

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Short textual description of an object—a one-line string.

CheckID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Identifier used together with other keys to uniquely identify a check.

CheckMode
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Condition is expected to exist in the environment. When True, the condition is expected to exist. For example, a file is expected to be on a system, so the Invoke method is expected to return True.

CheckSum
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Checksum calculated as the 16-bit sum of the first 32 bytes of a file.

CRC1
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) value calculated by using the middle 512K bytes.

CRC2
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

CRC value for the middle 512K bytes with an offset of modulo 3 to the start of a file of 0 (zero).

CreateTimeStamp
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only

Date the file is created.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Description of an object.

FileSize
Data type: uint64
Access type: Read-only

Size of a file.

For more information about using uint64 values in scripts, see Scripting in WMI.

IniFile
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Unique key that identifies an .ini file specification within its product.

Key
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Key of the .ini file within a section.

MD5Checksum
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

MD5Checksum algorithm is a well-known algorithm for computing a 128-bit checksum for a file or object. The likelihood of two different files producing the same MD5 checksum is very small (about 1 in 2^64). The MD5 checksum of a file can be used to construct a reliable content identifier that uniquely identifies a file. If two files have the same MD5 checksum, it is very likely that the files are identical. For purposes of MOF specification of the MD5 property, the MD5 algorithm always generates a 32-character string. For example: The string "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" generates the string "c3fcd3d76192e4007dfb496cca67e13b".

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Name of the file or the name of the file with a directory prefix.

Section
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Section of an .ini file.

SoftwareElementID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Identifier for a software element.

SoftwareElementState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

State of a software element.

ValueMeaning
1 (0x1)

Deployable

2 (0x2)

Installable

3 (0x3)

Executable

4 (0x4)

Running

 

TargetOperatingSystem
