I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

    ECHO %SvcName% is not running 
    ECHO START %SvcName%
    NET START "%SvcName%" > NUL || (
        ECHO "%SvcName%" wont start 
        EXIT /B 1

Powershell "properly", using the service's short name:
Get-Service BITS | ? {$_.Status -ne 'Running'} | Start-Service

Open in new window

Using the service's display name:
Get-Service -DisplayName 'Background Intelligent Transfer Service' | ? {$_.Status -ne 'Running'} | Start-Service

Open in new window

Since PowerShell doesn't care whether the service is already running, you can just leave out all the unnecessary stuff:
Start-Service BITS

Open in new window

Start-Service -DisplayName 'Background Intelligent Transfer Service'
