Hi,

I'm writing a VC++ 5.0 application on NT 4.0
I need to get a list of all services on the NT system and all their attributes(running, stopped, automatic start, hardware profile settings, etc.)
Is there an API that gives me access to this information?
Does anyone have some source code you can point me at?

thanks,
ralph

Use the GetService function with is part of the wsock32 library. Here is the declaration, if you need the definition, I will post a comment with it.

INT GetService(
 
    DWORD  dwNameSpace,      // specifies name space or spaces to search
    PGUID  lpGuid,      // points to GUID service type
    LPTSTR  lpServiceName,      // points to service name
    DWORD  dwProperties,      // specifies service information to be obtained
    LPVOID  lpBuffer,      // points to buffer to receive service information
    LPDWORD  lpdwBufferSize,      // points to size of buffer, size of service information
    LPSERVICE_ASYNC_INFO  lpServiceAsyncInfo       // reserved for future use, must be NULL
   );
