array<ServiceController^>^scServices = nullptr;
if ( sc )
{
   scServices = sc->DependentServices;
}

if ( sc && scServices )
{
   // 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 );
      for each (ServiceController^ scTemp in scServices)
      {
         Console::WriteLine(" {0}", scTemp->DisplayName);
      }
   }
}
