Property Value

Type: System::String^

Returns a String value used for the password in a connection to WMI.

A blank string ("") specifies a valid zero-length password.

Hard-coding a password is a security threat. Use security precautions such as encrypting a password, or prompting the user for a password when you set the Password property.

The default value is null. If the user name is also null, the credentials used will be those of the currently logged-on user.

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.
