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


Win32_ShortcutAction

Description

The Win32_ShortcutAction WMI class manages the creation of shortcuts. In the Advertise mode, the action creates shortcuts to the key files of components of features that are enabled. Advertised shortcuts are those for which the Target property is the feature of the component and the directory of the shortcut is one of the Shell folders or below one. Advertised shortcuts are created with a Microsoft installer technology Descriptor as the target. Non-advertised shortcuts are those for which the Target property in the Win32_ShortcutAction class is a property or the directory of the shortcut is not one of the Shell folders or below one. In the non-advertise mode (normal install), the action creates shortcuts to the key files of components of features that are selected for installation as well as non-advertised shortcuts whose component is selected for installation.
