The Win32_DCOMApplicationSetting class represents the settings of a DCOM application. It contains DCOM configuration options associated with the AppID key in the registry. These options are valid on the components logically grouped under the given application class.

Quick Start


Most WMI properties are read-only. You can only read values but not change them. Few properties are also writeable. You can assign new values to those properties.

Call – authentication is performed only at the beginning of each call when the application receives the request.

Packet – authentication is performed on all data received from the client.

PacketIntegrity – all the data transferred between client and application is authenticated and verified.

PacketPrivacy – The properties of the other authentication levels are used, and all data is encrypted.
