For Installing a service: - This example is installing a service called "Personal Database" with the path to the .exe

Const OWN_PROCESS = 16
Const NOT_INTERACTIVE = True
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objService = objWMIService.Get("Win32_BaseService")
errReturn = objService.Create ("DbService", "Personnel Database", _
  "c:\windows\system32\db.exe", OWN_PROCESS ,2 ,"Automatic" , _
      NOT_INTERACTIVE ,".\LocalSystem" ,"")

For Removing a service:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colListOfServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("SELECT * FROM Win32_Service WHERE Name = 'DbService'")
For Each objService in colListOfServices
    objService.StopService()
    objService.Delete()
Next
