Win32_Service vbscript sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).

ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself. The Win32_Service WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_Service WMI class represents a service on a Windows computer system. A service application conforms to the interface rules of the Service Control Manager (SCM) and can be started by a user automatically at system boot through the Services control panel utility, or by an application that uses the service functions included in the Windows API. Services can execute even when no user is logged on to the system.
