Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20
This will start a service.

strComputer = "ComputerName"
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Service WHERE DisplayName='Papercut Application Server'", "WQL", wbemFlagReturnImmediately + wbemFlagForwardOnly)
For Each objItem In colItems
