How to get a processId from a service handle?

What I am trying to do is take a service that I have a handle too and find out how much memory the service process is currently using.

So I have been able to get lots of info about a service from QueryServiceConfig2 but its not quite enough. From the binary path I could search all services but if the service binary is shared like svchost than I cannot tell which one is the exact process im looking for.

I would think you can get the processId from a serive handle but I havent been able to find any info on that.

Anyone know the solution?

You can get a service process handle by calling EnumServicesStatusEx().  That will return a SERVICES_STATUS_PROCESS structure that will give you the PID.
