monitor all  automatic services in windows with nagios

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to use nagios plugin check_winsvc to monitor all automatic services in windows, but unfortunately unsuccessful till now.
I download the plugin, put in nagios plugin directory, try from command line

[root@hqnagios plugins]# ./check_winsvc -H
CRITICAL: Could not retrieve information from check_nt. Host down?

I have nsclient ++ installed on my servers.

Can anyone help me?
Can  you propose me any other way of checking if all automatic services are working( with exception list) if it's not possible to implement this.
