Win32_VideoConfiguration - 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_VideoConfiguration WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


Win32_VideoConfiguration

Description

The Win32_VideoConfiguration WMI class represents a configuration of a video subsystem. Warning: This class has been eliminated from Windows XP and later; attempts to use it will generate a fatal error. In place of this class, you should use the properties contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution classes.
