CIM_OSVersionCheck class

The CIM_OSVersionCheck class specifies the versions of the operating system that can support a software element. The check can be run for a specific, minimum, maximum, or a range of operating system releases. To specify a specific operating system version, the minimum and maximum versions must be equal. To specify the minimum version, the minimum version only must be specified. To specify a maximum version, the maximum version only needs to be specified. To specify a range, both minimum and maximum versions must be specified.

The type of operating system is specified in the TargetOperatingSystem property of the owning software element. Details of the checks are compared with the corresponding details found in a CIM_OperatingSystem object referenced by a CIM_InstalledOS association for the CIM_ComputerSystem object that describes the environment. At least one CIM_OperatingSystem class must satisfy the details of the condition for the check to be satisfied. In other words, not all of the operating systems on the relevant computer system need to satisfy the condition. Also, the OSType property of the CIM_OperatingSystem class must match the type of the TargetOperatingSystem property.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.
 

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Members

The CIM_OSVersionCheck class has these types of members:

Methods

The CIM_OSVersionCheck class has these methods.

MethodDescription
Invoke

Takes a particular action. Not implemented by WMI.

 

Properties

The CIM_OSVersionCheck class has these properties.

Caption
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Maxlen (64)

A short textual description of the subject.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: key, maxlen (256)

Identifier used in conjunction with other keys to uniquely identify the check.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

CheckMode
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the condition is expected to exist in the environment. For example, a file is expected to be on a system, so the Invoke method should return TRUE.

If FALSE, the condition is not expected to exist. For example, a file is not on a system, so the Invoke method should return FALSE.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A description of the objects.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

MaximumVersion
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: maxlen (64), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_OperatingSystem.Version")

Maximum version of the required operating system.

The value is encoded in one of the following forms:

  • <major>.<minor>.<revision>
  • <major>.<minor><letter><revision>
MinimumVersion
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: maxlen (64), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_OperatingSystem.Version")

Minimum version of the required operating system.

The value is encoded in one of the following forms:

  • <major>.<minor>.<revision>
  • <major>.<minor><letter><revision>
Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_SoftwareElement.Name"), CIM_key, maxlen (256)

Name used to identify the software element

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

SoftwareElementID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_SoftwareElement.SoftwareElementID"), CIM_key, maxlen (256)

This is an identifier for this software element.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

SoftwareElementState

Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_SoftwareElement.SoftwareElementState"), CIM_key

The software element state of a software element.

This property is inherited from CIM_Check.

Deployable (0)

Describes the details necessary for successful distribution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the installable state (that is, the next state).

Installable (1)

Describes the details necessary for successful installation and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the executable state (that is, the next state).

Executable (2)

Describes the details necessary for successful execution and the details (conditions and actions) required to create a software element in the running state (that is, the next state).

Running (3)

Describes the details necessary to monitor and operate on a start element.

TargetOperatingSystem
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Propagated ("CIM_SoftwareElement.TargetOperatingSystem"), CIM_key, Mappingstrings ("MIF.DMTF|Software Component Information|002.5")

Target operating system of the software element.
