Win32_DirectorySpecification Class

This class represents the directory layout for the product. Each instance of the class represents a directory in both the source image and the destination image. Directory resolution is performed during the CostFinalize action and is done as follows: Root destination directories: Root directories entries are those with a null Directory_Parent value or a Directory_Parent value identical to the Directory value. The value in the Directory property is interpreted as the name of a property defining the location of the destination directory. If the property is defined, the destination directory is resolved to the property's value. If the property is undefined, the ROOTDRIVE property is used instead to resolve the path. Root source directorires: The value of the DefaultDir column for root entries is interpreted as the name of a property defining the source location of this directory. This property must be defined or an error will occur. Non-root destination directories: The Directory value for a non-root directory is also interpreted as the name of a property defining the location of the destination. If the property is defined, the destination directory is resolved to the property's value. If the property is not defined, the destination directory is resolved to a sub-directory beneath the resolved destination directory for the Directory_Parent entry. The DefaultDir value defines the name of the sub-directory. Non-root source directories: The source directory for a non-root directory is resolved to a sub-directory of the resolved source directory for the Directory_Parent entry. Again, the DefaultDir value defines the name of the sub-directory.
Namespace value is root/CIMV2.
WMI Provider value is MSIProv.


Properties

  • Caption
  • Not applicable.

  • CheckID
  • An identifier used in conjunction with other keys to uniquely identify the check

  • CheckMode
  • The CheckMode property is used to indicate whether the condition is expected to exist or not exist in the environment. When the value is True, the condition is expected to exist (e.g., a file is expected to be on a system) so invoke() is expected to return True. When the value is False, the condition is not expect to exist (e.g., a file is not to be on a system) so invoke is expected to return false

  • DefaultDir
  • Not applicable.

  • Description
  • A description of the objects.

  • Directory
  • Not applicable.

  • DirectoryPath
  • The DirectoryPath property is used to capture the name of a directory. The value supplied by an application provider is actually a default or recommended path name. The value can be changed for a particular environment.

  • DirectoryType
  • The DirectoryType property characterizes the type of directory being described.

  • Name
  • The name used to identify this software element

  • SoftwareElementID
  • This is an identifier for this software element.

  • SoftwareElementState
  • The software element state of a software element

  • TargetOperatingSystem
  • The target operating system of the this software element.

  • Version
  • Version should be in the form .. or .


    Methods

  • Invoke
  • The invoke method is to evaluate a particular check. The details of how the method evaluates a particular check in a CIM context is described by the non-abstract CIM_Check sub classes. The results of the method are based on the return value. - A 0 (zero) is returned if the condition is satisfied. - A 1 (one) is returned if the method is not supported. - Any other value indicates the condition is not satisfied.
