Full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted code. For more information, see Using Libraries from Partially Trusted Code.

The following example demonstrates how the ManagementPath class parses a path to a WMI object. The path that is parsed in the example is a path to an instance of a class.

using System;
using System.Management;

public class Sample 
{    
    public static void Main() 
    {

        // Get the WMI class path
        ManagementPath p = 
            new ManagementPath(
            "\\\\ComputerName\\root" +
            "\\cimv2:Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID=\"C:\"");

        Console.WriteLine("IsClass: " +
            p.IsClass);
        // Should be False (because it is an instance)

        Console.WriteLine("IsInstance: " +
            p.IsInstance);
        // Should be True

        Console.WriteLine("ClassName: " +
            p.ClassName);
        // Should be "Win32_LogicalDisk"

        Console.WriteLine("NamespacePath: " +
            p.NamespacePath);
        // Should be "ComputerName\cimv2"

        Console.WriteLine("Server: " + 
            p.Server);
        // Should be "ComputerName"

        Console.WriteLine("Path: " +
            p.Path);
        // Should be "ComputerName\root\cimv2:
        // Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceId="C:""

        Console.WriteLine("RelativePath: " +
            p.RelativePath);
        // Should be "Win32_LogicalDisk.DeviceID="C:""
