hm. Isn't it the old way to do it using win32?
How about using powershell remoting so that I can update it on all computers from one computer?

something like this using psremoting:
invoke-command -computer pc01, pc02, pc03 {get-service -name servicename} etc.

I have powershell remoting enabled and all computers are running 2012.

Please help

If you were only getting the service information or setting  those properties that can be set using the set-service cmdlet then yes you would be correct. Unfortunately the set-service cmdlet does not allow you to set the logon account or password.
