Querying the Status of Optional Features

Querying the Status of Optional Features

In Windows 7, WMI implemented the Win32_OptionalFeature class. This class retrieves the status of the optional features that are present on a computer.

You can use Windows PowerShell cmdlets to query the status of optional features. All of the examples in this topic use the Get-WmiObject cmdlet. For more information, see Get-WmiObject.
