MS-WSMV: Is is possible to choose the provider architecture for CIM operations? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to access the Windows registry over MS-WSMV using the StdRegProv class, and CIM method invocation as described in section 4.1.4 of the MS-WSMV specification.  However, I need to be able to select the provider architecture, as described here:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa393067%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    Is it possible to select a provider architecture when accessing WMI objects using MS-WSMV?  If so, how?

    Specifying appropriate <Option> elements under <OptionSet> is the way to specify ProviderArchitecture , RequiredArchitecture. See below.

    <OptionSet>
        <Option Name="wmi:__ProviderArchitecture">32</Option>
        <Option Name="wmi:__RequiredArchitecture">TRUE<Option>
    <OptionSet>

    At present this feature does not work due to impelmentation issue and it will be addressed in future releases of Windows.

    MS-WSMV specification is updated with Windows Behavior Note.

  • Hi Sreekanth,

    Did you get my reply to your email?  I can indeed make SOAP calls to get the StdRegProv and execute methods.  I just need a way to select the provider architecture using SOAP.

    Regards,

  • Hello Dave,

                     From my research, the context used to set the needed properties doesn't seem to be exposed through any existing class properties. But I have few more places to check. I will provide you an update as soon as I finish my research.
