NET STOP IISADMIN /Y

NET START IISADMIN

You can use NET STOP [service name] /Y for any service that is running, just replace [service name] with the name of the service, you find the name of the service by going to Services..

But I want to do that programatically using the ADSI/WMI APIs in c++. With IIS5 Microsoft delivers the scripts Startsrv.vbs and Stopsrv.vbs but in IIS6 these scripts are not delivered.

To be more specific, programatically find all the services available for IIS6, their current state and able to start & stop each service...

I am no C++ programmer, but in VB I programmed a tool which calls the Shell-API and does all work for me. Here are the important parts:

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function OpenProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwDesiredAccess As Long, ByVal bInheritHandle As Long, ByVal dwProcessId As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetExitCodeProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal hProcess As Long, lpExitCode As Long) As Long
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Const STILL_ACTIVE = &H103
Const PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION = &H400

Private Sub ShellWait(ByVal CommandLine As String, Optional ByVal WindowStyle As VbAppWinStyle = vbHide)
   
    Dim hProcess As Long
    Dim RetVal As Long
   
    hProcess = OpenProcess(PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION, False, Shell(CommandLine, WindowStyle))
   
    Do
        GetExitCodeProcess hProcess, RetVal
        DoEvents: Sleep 100
    Loop While RetVal = STILL_ACTIVE
   
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

    ShellWait "NET STOP IISADMIN /Y"
    ShellWait "NET START IISADMIN"

End Sub

Using WMI it's easy to configure IIS programmatically. WIM Studio gives extensive information about the classes to be used and other details.  But I can't use it for my application. Only ADSI to be used. Most of the sites explain using VBScript examples but rarely with C++/COM.  Like for the simple VBScript code shown below how do u write in C++,

        IIsObjectPath = "IIS://" & MachineName & "/" & ObjectPath
        Set IIsObject = GetObject(IIsObjectPath)
        IIsObject.Stop

The code is picked from the adsutil.vbs file.
