When using this class, first identify which contents need to be downloaded by querying SMS_CIToContent Server WMI Class and obtain the list of ContentID properties matching the specific language criteria. Given the list, you can then obtain the associated download URL and the related properties for the content files from SMS_CIContentFiles.
