Service Control Manager
I have painstakingly researched everything dealing with services. It has taken me a while to weed through all the garbage that Microsoft dishes out but I finally did. This is a recreation (with a few tweaks) of the Service Control Manager for NT.
It doesn't do everything yet. This code shows you how to start/stop/pause/continue services. Beyond that, and even more important, it shows you how to determine IF a service can be stopped.. if it IS disabled.. if an error occurred, etc.
This is my first time submitting code to Planetsourcecode and I hope you guys vote for my code. I am planning on updating this app shortly to fully work with 2000 (using some new 2000 features) and enable the configuration of services. I also added a feature that Microsoft includes in there SCM. I am able to determine if a service depends on another service so all dependent services stop if you stop the main service. I can go into details and answer questions via feedback.
Please send me your feedback.

This app deals with services so Windows NT is required. I also use Sheridan 3d controls (threed32.ocx) which comes on the VB cd (under tools) but is not a standard install.
If you don't know anything about services.. don't mess with them. Stopping certain services can cause problems with your system.
You also need to be an administrator of a machine to mess with services.
