The Refresh Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class method, in Configuration Manager, reloads the install map from the database, which repopulates the classes.
The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and defines the method.
SInt32 Refresh( );
An SInt32 data type that is 0 to indicate success or non-zero to indicate failure.

This method is used in the rare case when a new component is added by Configuration Manager site setup and the SMS Provider is located on a remote SQL Server computer that might not be restarted. Generally it is not necessary for your application to call this method because the SMS Provider copy of the install map will be up to date.
