Load a list of services you want to stop into a text file:

Start them up in reverse order.
You may want to stop other services.....

Have fun, inthedark....-




Option Explicit
Private Const INFINITE = &HFFFF ' (Used by run command)
Private Declare Function OpenProcess Lib "kernel32" _
        (ByVal dwAccess As Long, ByVal fInherit As Integer, _
        ByVal hObject As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function WaitForSingleObject Lib "kernel32" _
        (ByVal hHandle As Long, ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long) As Long



Public Function RunCommandOK(CommandLine As String, Optional FocusStyle As VbAppWinStyle = vbNormalFocus) As Boolean
   
    ' runs a batch command of other process until complete
       
    Dim Success As Long
    Dim ProgID As Long
    Dim Handle As Long
    ProgID = Shell(CommandLine, FocusStyle)
    Handle = OpenProcess(&H100000, True, ProgID)
    Success = WaitForSingleObject(Handle, INFINITE)

End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim ok

ok = RunCommandOK("net stop ""world wide web publishing service""")
ok = RunCommandOK("net stop ""iis admin service""")
msgbox "Service is stopped"
ok = RunCommandOK("net start ""iis admin service""")
ok = RunCommandOK("net start ""world wide web publishing service""")

End Sub
