	string path


Type: System.String

A WMI path.

If the specified path is a relative path only (a server or namespace is not specified), the default path is the local machine, and the default namespace is the DefaultPath path (by default, root\cimv2). If the user specifies a full path, the default settings are overridden.

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 initializes a new instance of the ManagementObject class.

using System;
using System.Management;

    public static int Main(string[] args) 
        ManagementObject o =
            new ManagementObject("Win32_Service.Name='Alerter'");

        //or with a full path :

        ManagementObject mObj =
