Win32_PrintJob - 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_PrintJob WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.



The Win32_PrintJob WMI class represents a print job generated by a Windows application. Any unit of work generated by the print command of an application running on a Windows system is a descendent (or member) of this class.
