Property Value

Type: System.String

If the user name is from a domain other than the current domain, the string may contain the domain name and user name, separated by a backslash: string 'username' = "EnterDomainHere\\EnterUsernameHere". The strUser parameter cannot be an empty string.

null if the connection will use the currently logged-on user; otherwise, a string representing the user name. The default value is null.

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 connects to a remote computer and displays information about the operating system on the remote computer. A ConnectionOptions is created to connect to the remote computer with the desired connection options.

using System;
using System.Management;
public class RemoteConnect 
{
    public static void Main() 
    {
        // Build an options object for the remote connection
        // if you plan to connect to the remote
        // computer with a different user name
        // and password than the one you are currently using.
        // This example uses the default values.  
        ConnectionOptions options = 
            new ConnectionOptions();
        options.Username = "UserName"; 

        // Make a connection to a remote computer.
        // Replace the "FullComputerName" section of the
        // string "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2" with
        // the full computer name or IP address of the
        // remote computer.
        ManagementScope scope = 
            new ManagementScope(
            "\\\\FullComputerName\\root\\cimv2", options);
        scope.Connect();

        //Query system for Operating System information
        ObjectQuery query = new ObjectQuery(
            "SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem");
        ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = 
            new ManagementObjectSearcher(scope,query);

        ManagementObjectCollection queryCollection = searcher.Get();
        foreach ( ManagementObject m in queryCollection)
        {
            // Display the remote computer information
            Console.WriteLine("Computer Name : {0}", 
                m["csname"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Windows Directory : {0}", 
                m["WindowsDirectory"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Operating System: {0}",  
                m["Caption"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Version: {0}", m["Version"]);
            Console.WriteLine("Manufacturer : {0}", 
                m["Manufacturer"]);
        }
    }
