Device Properties That Have Corresponding SPDRP_Xxx Identifiers

In Windows Vista and later versions of Windows, the unified device property model supports the device instance properties that have corresponding SPDRP_Xxx identifiers, which are defined in Setupapi.h. These properties characterize the configuration of a device instance. These properties are listed in this section by their corresponding property keys in the unified device property model.

The following information is supplied for the device instance properties that have corresponding SPDRP_Xxx identifiers:

  • The property key that represents the device property.

  • The property-data-type identifier that indicates the data type of the property.

  • Access permissions.

  • The corresponding system-defined SPDRP_Xxx identifier.

  • Whether the property value is localized.

  • How the property is typically set.

  • How to access the property.

Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 support most of these properties. However, these earlier versions of Windows do not support the property keys in the unified device property model. Instead, these versions of Windows use the SPDRP_Xxx identifiers to represent and access the properties. The information that is provided with each property key indicates which earlier versions of Windows support the property and provides a link to information about how to access the property on these earlier versions of Windows.
