ServiceController[] scServices = sc.DependentServices;

// Display the list of services dependent on the Event Log service. 
if (scServices.Length == 0)
{
   Console.WriteLine("There are no services dependent on {0}", 
                      sc.ServiceName);
}
else 
{
   Console.WriteLine("Services dependent on {0}:",
                      sc.ServiceName);

   foreach (ServiceController scTemp in scServices)
   {
      Console.WriteLine(" {0}", scTemp.DisplayName);
   }
}
