Win32_DirectorySpecification - WMI sample in JScript
The foundations for Manageability in Windows 7/2008/Vista/XP/2000 and Millennium Edition/'98 are Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI;
formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).
ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples.
You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself.
On this site, you can find many WMI samples.
The Win32_DirectorySpecification 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 as follows:
- Root destination directories: The root directory 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 directories: 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.
