Examples

The following code example shows how to list all the available system services running on the host computer, "myMachine", together with the location to find the executables of the services.


Dim cp As IADsComputer
On Error GoTo Cleanup

Set cp = GetObject("WinNT://myMachine,computer")
If (IsEmpty(cp) = False) Then
    cp.Filter = Array("Service")
    For Each service In cp
        MsgBox service.Name & " @" & service.path
    Next
End if

Cleanup:
    If (Err.Number<>0) Then
        MsgBox("An error has occurred. " & Err.Number)
    End If
    Set cp = Nothing
