Monitoring a system service

3 posts in this topic

Could someone please tell me if you can monitor a windows service.

I need to be able to tell if the service is STOPPED or STARTED at any

given point in time and then do something depending on the state.

Thanks in advance

Search the forum, there was something on this in the last month or so I believe.

$servicename = 'wuauserv'; example windows updates

$stdout = Run('sc.exe query ' & $servicename, '', @SW_HIDE, 2)
$data = _StdOut($stdout)

Func _StdOut($stdout)
    Local $data
    While 1
        $data = StdOutRead($stdout)
        If @error Then Return 'unknown'
        If $data Then
            $data = StringStripWS($data, 4)
            Select
                Case StringInStr($data, 'STATE : 1')
                    Return '1'
                Case StringInStr($data, 'STATE : 2')
                    Return '2'
                Case StringInStr($data, 'STATE : 3')
