Namespace:  System.Management
Assembly:  System.Management (in System.Management.dll)

Public Class EnumerationOptions _
	Inherits ManagementOptions
Dim instance As EnumerationOptions

The following example initializes an EnumerationOptions variable with an EnumerationOptions constructor and then gets all the instances of a WMI class and its subclasses.

Imports System
Imports System.Management
Public Class RemoteConnect

    Public Overloads Shared Function Main( _
    ByVal args() As String) As Integer 

        Dim opt As New EnumerationOptions
        ' Will enumerate instances of the given class 
        ' and any subclasses.
        opt.EnumerateDeep = True 
        Dim mngmtClass As New ManagementClass("CIM_Service")
        Dim o As ManagementObject
        For Each o In mngmtClass.GetInstances(opt)
        Next o

        Return 0
    End Function 
End Class
