Problem with ServiceProcess.ServiceController

When trying to test (run Debug) my project I get this error:

Error      1      Type 'ServiceProcess.ServiceController' is not defined.      C:\Documents and Settings\TheUser\Local Settings\Application Data\Temporary Projects\WindowsApplication1\Form1.vb      12      27      WindowsApplication1

The application should list services and let a user start and stop them.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you added a reference to this class?

on the toolbar go to:-

Project -> Add Reference...

Then scroll down to System.ServiceProcess.dll

Highlight it and then click the Select button in the top right-hand corner. Then click OK at the bottom.

You cold also reference it at the very top of your form code, before any code:-

Imports System.ServiceProcess

Hope this helps
