Subclass of CIM_ManagedElement
A CIM_Check is a condition or characteristic that is expected to be true in an environment defined or scoped by an instance of a CIM_ComputerSystem. The Checks associated with a particular SoftwareElement are organized into one of two groups using the Phase property of the CIM_SoftwareElementChecks association. Conditions that are expected to be true when a SoftwareElement is in a particular state and environment are known as ‘in-state’ conditions. Conditions that need to be satisfied in order to transition the SoftwareElement to its next state are known as ‘next-state’ conditions.
A CIM_ComputerSystem object represents the environment in which CIM_SoftwareElements are already deployed/installed or into which the elements will be deployed/installed. For the case in which an element is already installed, the CIM_InstalledSoftwareElement association identifies the CIM_ComputerSystem object that represents the “environment”. When a SoftwareElement is being deployed for installation on a ComputerSystem, that system is the target of the Check and is identified using the TargetSystem reference of the InvokeOnSystem method.
An identifier used in conjunction with other keys to uniquely identify the Check.
The CheckMode property is used to indicate whether the condition is expected to exist or not exist in the environment. When the value is True, the condition is expected to exist (e.g., a file is expected to be on a system), so the Invoke methods are expected to return True. When the value is False, the condition is not expected to exist (e.g., a file is not to be on a system), so the Invoke methods are expected to return False.

uint32 Invoke ()
The Invoke method evaluates this Check. The details of the evaluation are described by the specific subclasses of CIM_Check. When the SoftwareElement being checked is already installed, the CIM_InstalledSoftwareElement association identifies the CIM_ComputerSystem in whose context the Invoke is executed. If this association is not in place, then the InvokeOnSystem method should be used - since it identifies the TargetSystem as an input parameter of the method.
The results of the Invoke method are based on the return value. A zero is returned if the condition is satisfied. A one is returned if the method is not supported. Any other value indicates the condition is not satisfied.
uint32 InvokeOnSystem (CIM_ComputerSystem TargetSystem)
The InvokeOnSystem method evaluates this Check. The details of the evaluation are described by the specific subclasses of CIM_Check. The method’s TargetSystem input parameter specifies the ComputerSystem in whose context the method is invoked.
The results of the InvokeOnSystem method are based on the return value. A zero is returned if the condition is satisfied. A one is returned if the method is not supported. Any other value indicates the condition is not satisfied.

- Reference to ComputerSystem in whose context the method is to be invoked.
