Win32_LoadOrderGroup - 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.


Win32_LoadOrderGroup

Description

The Win32_LoadOrderGroup WMI class represents a group of system services that define execution dependencies. The services must be initiated in the order specified by the Load Order Group, as the services are dependent on each other. These dependent services require the presence of the antecedent services to function correctly.

Example(s)

var wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10;
var wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20;

var arrComputers = new Array("DELL17");
for (i = 0; i < arrComputers.length; i++) {
   WScript.Echo();
   WScript.Echo("==========================================");
   WScript.Echo("Computer: " + arrComputers[i]);
   WScript.Echo("==========================================");

   var objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\" + arrComputers[i] + "\\root\\CIMV2");
   var colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_LoadOrderGroup", "WQL",
                                          wbemFlagReturnImmediately | wbemFlagForwardOnly);

   var enumItems = new Enumerator(colItems);
   for (; !enumItems.atEnd(); enumItems.moveNext()) {
      var objItem = enumItems.item();

      WScript.Echo("Caption: " + objItem.Caption);
      WScript.Echo("Description: " + objItem.Description);
      WScript.Echo("DriverEnabled: " + objItem.DriverEnabled);
      WScript.Echo("GroupOrder: " + objItem.GroupOrder);
      WScript.Echo("InstallDate: " + WMIDateStringToDate(objItem.InstallDate));
      WScript.Echo("Name: " + objItem.Name);
      WScript.Echo("Status: " + objItem.Status);
   }
}

   {
      strDateTime = strDateTime + dtmDate.substr(7, 1) + "/";
   }
   else
   {
      strDateTime = strDateTime + dtmDate.substr(6, 2) + "/";
