This interface is created from the ISyncProviderRegistration interface and then subsequently registered. It is the mechanism by which applications can set the context and UX properties for a synchronization provider by first retrieving the property store and then modifying it.

You can get and set the properties of a synchronization provider by calling the GetSyncProvider method and manipulating the provider's IPropertyStore.
