How to register Windows Security Center with our anti-virus program? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We develop own anti-virus program just before.

    We want to register Windows Security Center with my program.

    (OS: windows 7)

    How can we register our program? Is there any ways to register or guidelines?

    Also, I want to know the process of application for Windows Security Center.

    I hope I can get an answer as soon as possible.

  • Hi,

    Third party anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewall programs use an API call to register with the  Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service.  Action center receives notifications from WMI. Please make sure all the messages are turned on in Action Center settings. If the Action Center cannot detect your anti-virus program, you may need to do something that makes the anti-virus program register with WMI.

    Actually, this is a Windows 7 problem. If you have any futher question, please post it in Windows 7 Forum. Thank you.


    Best Regards,
