Hi
I would like to write a utility which will check the status of the services on a server and identify any services which are marked as automatic but have stopped due to some reason or other.

Any pointers to get me going on this one?

Thanks

Private Sub Command1_Click()
On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service", , 48)
For Each objItem In colItems
    If objItem.StartMode = "Auto" And objItem.State = "Stopped" Then
        Debug.Print "AcceptPause: " & objItem.AcceptPause
        Debug.Print "AcceptStop: " & objItem.AcceptStop
        Debug.Print "Caption: " & objItem.Caption
        Debug.Print "CheckPoint: " & objItem.CheckPoint
        Debug.Print "CreationClassName: " & objItem.CreationClassName
        Debug.Print "Description: " & objItem.Description
        Debug.Print "DesktopInteract: " & objItem.DesktopInteract
        Debug.Print "DisplayName: " & objItem.DisplayName
        Debug.Print "ErrorControl: " & objItem.ErrorControl
        Debug.Print "ExitCode: " & objItem.ExitCode

Hi, am I supposed to be using the name of the computer in the strComputer variable?
This is Visual Basic Express 2005 and not working properly.
I am used to VB5 and VB6 not really Express - would this function be different in this environment?

I am also writing and testing this code on XP Pro rather than Server 2003 - would this cause problems?
