|Description||string||The OSVersionCheck class specifies the versions of the operating system that can support/execute this Software Element. The operating system itself (whose version should be validated) is defined in the TargetOperatingSystem property of the Check's scoping SoftwareElement.
This Check can be for a specific, minimum, maximum or a range of releases of an OS. To identify a specific version of the OS, the minimum and maximum versions must be the same. To specify a minimum, only the minimum version needs to be defined. To specify a maximum version, only the maximum version needs to be defined. To specify a range, both minimum and maximum versions need to be defined.
The data gathered from the Check and SoftwareElement objects are compared with the corresponding details found in the CIM_OperatingSystem object (referenced by the InstalledOS association), for the CIM_ComputerSystem object that defines the environment. The OSType property of CIM_OperatingSystem must match the value of CIM_SoftwareElement.TargetOperating System. Also, the OS' version information should be within the range of CIM_OSVersionCheck.Minimum/MaximumValue properties. Note that all the operating systems on the relevant computer do not need to satisfy the Check.
