Start and Stop service on remote server programatically

I need to be able to start and stop a service on another computer on
the network. But I cannot connect to the other computer using my
standard user credentials. I have a separate login for that for which
I use Remote Desktop to connect to the other machine.

The other machine is a test server where my Windows Service application
is running. It is an inconvenience to have to connect through Remote
Desktop just to start and stop the service.

I would like to create a small app with a single button that I can use
to simply stop the service and start it as needed.

How can I connect to the remote machine using the appropriate
credentials programatically so that my program impersonates the correct
user account on the other machine?

Thanks,

Check out the System.ServiceP rocess.ServiceC ontroller. It is designed for
what you want.

Yes, I am familiar with that part. What is not apparent is how to
impersonate a different user on the remote machine. I have figured
that out.

I created an extremely simple windows service that only writes to the EventLogs on Stop and Pause. I installed it using the InstallUtil.exe program, the output of which is below.

The output for NET START is below as well. The Services list in the W2K administrator...

Hi everybody, My problem seems a bit clichè but I could not work around. Well I read lots of MSDN papers and discussions, but my problem is a bit different from them.

I wish to write a small application that will allow me to start and stop a windows service on another server. Currently, I have to connect to the server using Remote Desktop Connection and then log into the server using a special login and password. Then I can open the services applet and start and stop the server. This is very inconvenient for debugging the service. What I would like to do, from my dev box, is somehow connect to...

Hi All, Looking for a bit of help here. I have a VB.NET application that runs as a service on a W2003 Server, well that sometimes runs as a service. If I start the service while connected to the server via remote desktop, the service starts successfully and all is hunky dory. However, if I logon directly to the server as the same user, I get the message:

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
