Win32_VideoConfiguration

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class is not active in releases after Windows 2000. It will not return any instances as there is no provider backing it.

The Win32_VideoConfiguration class represents a configuration of a video subsystem. This class has been deprecated in favor of the properties contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor, and CIM_VideoControllerResolution classes

Quick Start

Properties

In this WMI class, all WMI properties are read-only. You can only read values but not change them.

ActualColorResolution

Data type UInt32

The ActualColorResolution property indicates the current color depth of the video display.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterChipType

Data type String

The AdapterChipType property contains the name of the adapter chip.

Example: s3

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterCompatibility

Data type String

The AdapterCompatibility property specifies the name of the manufacturer of the adapter. This name can be used to compare the compatibility of this device with the needs of the computer system.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterDACType

Data type String

The AdapterDACType property indicates the name of the digital-to-analog chip (DAC) used in the adapter.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterDescription

Data type String

The AdapterDescription property contains a description or descriptive name of the video adapter.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterRAM

Data type UInt32

The AdapterRAM property indicates the memory size of the video adapter.

Example: 16777216

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

AdapterType

Data type String

The AdapterType property indicates the type of video adapter.

Character Set: Alphanumeric

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

BitsPerPixel

Data type UInt32

The BitsPerPixel property indicates the actual number of bits per pixel representing the display. This may be scaled to the current video setting (represented by the ActualColorResolution property) of the user.

Example: 8

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

Caption

Data type String

A short textual description (one-line string) of the CIM_Setting object.

ColorPlanes

Data type UInt32

The ColorPlanes property indicates the current number of color planes used in the video display. A color plane is another way to represent pixel colors; instead of assigning a single RGB value to each a pixel, color planes separate the graphic into each of the primary color components (red green blue), and store them in their own planes. This allows for greater color depths on 8 and 16 bit video systems. Present graphics systems have the bitwidth large enough to store color depth information, making only one color plane necessary.

Example: 1

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

ColorTableEntries

Data type UInt32

The ColorTableEntries property indicates the number of color indexes in a color table for a video display. This property is used if the device has a color depth of no more than 8 bits per pixel. For devices with greater color depths, -1 is returned.

Example: 256

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

Description

Data type String

A textual description of the CIM_Setting object.

DeviceSpecificPens

Data type UInt32

The DeviceSpecificPens property indicates the current number of device-specific pens. A value of 0xFFFFFFFF means the device does not support pens. Pens are used to draw lines and theborders of polygonal objects.

Example: 3

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

DriverDate

Data type DateTime

The DriverDate property indicates the date and time the current video driver was installed.

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

HorizontalResolution

Data type UInt32

The HorizontalResolution property indicates the current number of pixels in the horizontal direction (X axis) of the display.

Example: 1024

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

InfFilename

Data type String

The InfFilename property specifies the path to the .inf file of the video driver.

Example: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS

This property has been deprecated in favor of a corresponding property(s) contained in the Win32_VideoController, Win32_DesktopMonitor and//or CIM_VideoControllerResolution

SystemPaletteEntries

Data type UInt32

The SystemPaletteEntries property indicates the current number of color index entries reserved for system use. This value is only valid for display settings that use an indexed palette . Indexed palettes are not used for color depths greater than 8 bits per pixel. If the color depth is more than 8 bits per pixel, this value is set to NULL.
