Windows Service ServiceController in VB.NET error

I have created a windows service and have successfully installed it and confirmed it works.

Now I am trying to connect to it using a ServiceController from System.ServiceProcess.

I am not able to view information about my service, but I can view information from other services on the server... so I did not think it would be a network permission issue.

I get this error message:  "Cannot open DbaseEmailService service on computer 'ServerName'.
I get this InnerExeception Message:  "Access is denied"

I must have missed something when creating the service,  Is there some property I may need to set on my service app that will allow me to control it using the ServiceController in VB.NET?
Dim se As System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController

Try
             se = New System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController("DbaseEmailService", "ServerName") 'DOES NOT WORK
             
            ' se = New System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController("Alerter", "ServerName") 'WORKS OK


            ' se = New System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController("Dnscache", "ServerName") 'WORKS OK

        Dim bt As String = "Service Status Unknown"
        'display service status

        Select Case se.Status
            Case ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped
                bt = "Service Stopped"
                Case ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus.Running
                    bt = "Service Running"
                Case Else

            End Select
            ButtonService.Content = bt

        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
        End Try

Open in new window

well, it does look like a permission issue. What account is your service running as ? is it the same as the other services you are able to query?

in any case you might want to look at this information:

The service is running under account:  NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService

Everything else seems correct when comparing against other services that work.

The only difference was the Path to executable was different, so I made sure permissions were set the same as the others that work, but still have access denied.
