RelativePath Property of the IFPCWebFilter Interface

The RelativePath property gets or sets the path to the dynamic-link library (DLL) for the Web filter, including the file name of the DLL, relative to the Forefront TMG installation folder.

HRESULT put_RelativePath(
	BSTR bstrPath

BSTR that specifies the relative path of the filter's DLL.

Return Value

These property methods return S_OK if the call is successful; otherwise, they return an error code.

[Visual Basic]
Property RelativePath As String

Property Value

String that specifies the relative path of the filter's DLL.


This property is read/write. It is initially set when the object is created by a call to the Add method of the FPCWebFilters collection (IFPCWebFilters interface in C++).

For a Web filter to work on a Forefront TMG computer, its dynamic-link library (DLL) must be copied to the computer, an object representing it must be created in the FPCWebFilters collection for the computer's array, and it must be registered as an extension of the Forefront TMG Web proxy on the computer by including a reference to it in the computer's InstalledWebFilters property.

When an enterprise with central array management is deployed, Web filters can be added to the FPCWebFilters collections in the enterprise configuration and in array configurations. If the same Web filter is included in the FPCWebFilters collections in the enterprise configuration and an array configuration with different values for the FilterDirection property of the Web filter, the enterprise setting overrides the array setting. Conversely, the values of the RelativePath and Priority properties in the enterprise configuration are ignored.


Client Requires Windows Vista or Windows XP.
Server Requires Windows Server 2008.
Version Requires Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG).

Declared in Msfpccom.idl.
