- Create a folder named ManagementClasses in the following path:<Drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminUI\XmlStorage\Extensions
- Create an .xml file that has the ManagementClassDescription data type and that defines any added ManagementClass classes.
- Add the .xml file to the ManagementClasses folder.
