WWW Service Running?

How do I check, using a C++ program, to see if IIS 4 is running on NT or Peer Web Services is running on Win95?  If it is running, how do I shut it down?

All you need to know is the .exe name of the process you want to find (inetsvc.exe on NT).

The problem is how to shut down the process on NT - NT services run in a provileged environment and therefor cannot just be terminated.

Use

void StopService()
{
    SC_HANDLE   schService;
    SC_HANDLE   schSCManager;

    schSCManager = OpenSCManager(
                        NULL,                   // machine (NULL == local)
                        NULL,                   // database (NULL == default)
                        SC_MANAGER_ALL_ACCESS   // access required
                        );
    if ( schSCManager )
    {
        schService = OpenService(schSCManager, TEXT(SZSERVICENAME), SERVICE_ALL_ACCESS);

        if (schService)
        {
            // try to stop the service
            if ( ControlService( schService, SERVICE_CONTROL_STOP, &ssStatus ) )
            {
                _tprintf(TEXT("Stopping %s."), TEXT(SZSERVICEDISPLAYNAME));
                Sleep( 1000 );

                while( QueryServiceStatus( schService, &ssStatus ) )
                {
                    if ( ssStatus.dwCurrentState == SERVICE_STOP_PENDING )
                    {
                        _tprintf(TEXT("."));
                        Sleep( 1000 );
                    }
                    else
                        break;
                }

                if ( ssStatus.dwCurrentState == SERVICE_STOPPED )
                    _tprintf(TEXT("\n%s stopped.\n"), TEXT(SZSERVICEDISPLAYNAME) );
                else
                    _tprintf(TEXT("\n%s failed to stop.\n"), TEXT(SZSERVICEDISPLAYNAME) );

            }


            CloseServiceHandle(schService);
        }
        else
            _tprintf(TEXT("OpenService failed - %s\n"), GetLastErrorText(szErr,256));

        CloseServiceHandle(schSCManager);
    }
    else
        _tprintf(TEXT("OpenSCManager failed - %s\n"), GetLastErrorText(szErr,256));
}

Where 'SZSERVICENAME' is the internal service name (e.g. 'W3SVC') and 'SZSERVICEDISPLAYNAME' is the display name (e.g. 'WWW Publishing Service').


On Win9x, you could simply use the process ID retrieved with the code from the MS sample in a call to 'OpenProcess()', which returns a handle that can be used to call 'TerminateProcess()'


Feel free to ask if you need more information!

BTW: On NT, 'QueryServiceStatus()' would be sufficiant to find out whether W3SVC is running, e.g.:

BOOL IsServiceRunning ( LPCTSTR szServiceName)
{
    BOOL bRC = FALSE;

    SC_HANDLE   schService;
    SC_HANDLE   schSCManager;
    SERVICE_STATUS ssStatus;

    schSCManager = OpenSCManager(
                        NULL,                   // machine (NULL == local)
                        NULL,                   // database (NULL == default)
                        SC_MANAGER_ALL_ACCESS   // access required
                        );
    if ( schSCManager )
    {
        schService = OpenService(schSCManager, szServiceName), SERVICE_ALL_ACCESS);

        if (schService)
        {
                if( QueryServiceStatus( schService, &ssStatus ) )
                {
                    if ( ssStatus.dwCurrentState == SERVICE_RUNNING )
                    {
                       bRC = TRUE;
                    }
                }

            CloseServiceHandle(schService);
        }
        else
            _tprintf(TEXT("OpenService failed - %s\n"), GetLastErrorText(szErr,256));

        CloseServiceHandle(schSCManager);
    }
    else
        _tprintf(TEXT("OpenSCManager failed - %s\n"), GetLastErrorText(szErr,256));

 return ( bRC);
}

What about Win95/98?  Services do not exist.

As I stated above (sorry for not emphasizing this):

This is not as clean as on NT, but the only method...
