Win32_RemoveFileAction - WMI sample in VBScript

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_RemoveFileAction WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.



The Win32_RemoveFileAction WMI class represents files previously installed which are to be removed. The class can also remove specific author-specified files that weren`t installed by the installer. Each of these files is `gated` by a link to an entry in the software element class; those files whose components are resolved to any `active` Action state (that is, not in the `off`, or NULL, state) will be removed (if the file exists in the specified directory, of course). This implies that removal of files will be attempted when the gating software element is first installed, during a reinstall, and again when the gating software element is removed.
