Win32_ComponentCategory Class

The Win32_ComponentCategory class represents a component category. Component categories are groups of COM classes with a defined functionality set shared between them. A client using these interfaces queries the registry for the category title and unique identifier called a CategoryID, which is created from a globally unique identifier (GUID).
Namespace value is root/CIMV2.
WMI Provider value is CIMWin32.


Properties

  • Caption
  • The Caption property is a short textual description (one-line string) of the object.

  • CategoryId
  • The CategoryId property indicates a GUID for this component category.

  • Description
  • The Description property provides a textual description of the object.

  • InstallDate
  • The InstallDate property is datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

  • Name
  • The Name property indicates a descriptive name of this component category.

  • Status
  • The Status property is a string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses are "OK", "Degraded" and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future. An example is a SMART-enabled hard drive. Non-operational statuses can also be specified. These are "Error", "Starting", "Stopping" and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.
