In Configuration Manager, the GetProviderVersion Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class method gets the product version string from the version resources of the SMS Provider DLL.
The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and is intended to show the definition of the method.
SInt32 GetProviderVersion( String VersionString );
- Data type: String Qualifiers: [out]Product version string from the version resources of the Smsprov.dll file.
An SInt32 data type that is 0 to indicate success or non-zero to indicate failure.
For information about handling returned errors, see About Configuration Manager Errors.
The version that is obtained by this method allows your application to determine whether the SMS Provider has had a hotfix applied.
The following example shows how to call this method to get the version number of the SMS Provider.
Dim Identification As SWbemObject Dim ProviderVersion As String Set Identification = GetObject("winmgmts:\root\sms\site_<sitecode>:SMS_Identification") Identification.GetProviderVersion ProviderVersion MsgBox "Version = " & ProviderVersion
