Win32_LoadOrderGroup - WMI sample in Perl

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)

use strict;
use Win32::OLE('in');

use constant wbemFlagReturnImmediately => 0x10;
use constant wbemFlagForwardOnly => 0x20;

my @computers = ("DELL17");
foreach my $computer (@computers) {
   print "\n";
   print "==========================================\n";
   print "Computer: $computer\n";
   print "==========================================\n";

   my $objWMIService = Win32::OLE->GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\$computer\\root\\CIMV2") or die "WMI connection failed.\n";
   my $colItems = $objWMIService->ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_LoadOrderGroup", "WQL",
                  wbemFlagReturnImmediately | wbemFlagForwardOnly);

   foreach my $objItem (in $colItems) {
      print "Caption: $objItem->{Caption}\n";
      print "Description: $objItem->{Description}\n";
      print "DriverEnabled: $objItem->{DriverEnabled}\n";
      print "GroupOrder: $objItem->{GroupOrder}\n";
      print "InstallDate: $objItem->{InstallDate}\n";
      print "Name: $objItem->{Name}\n";
      print "Status: $objItem->{Status}\n";
      print "\n";
   }
}sub WMIDateStringToDate(strDate)
{
   return "blah";
}
