I'm trying to implement a service control utility, that among others has to set an specific service's security descriptor so that users from the USERS group can PAUSE and CONTINUE the service. I'm having some trouble implementing the SetServiceObjectSecurity function from advapi32.dll (Windows API). Could somebody please post a code snippet that sets the DACL for a service?? (the same utility installs this service and is its owner, so it has permission to change its DACL).

 Thanks!
