The service inspector allows you to query installed services on a computer. You can query installed services using the service inspector, or you can query the installed services that are currently running using the inspector running service.

If the BESClient service is installed but not active at the time you run the inspector you will get:

  • Q: exists service "BesClient"
  • A: True


  • Q: exists running service "BesClient"
  • A: False

You can use the plural services to get the list of services, each with its service name, display name, and status.

  • Q: services
  • A: "AdobeARMservice" "Adobe Acrobat Update Service" "Running"
  • A: "AeLookupSvc" "Application Experience" "Stopped"
  • A: "ALG" "Application Layer Gateway Service" "Stopped"

or to get specific values for all services, such as the display name, the login account under which the service is configured to run, the status and the ‘imagepath’:

  • Q: (display name of it, login account of it, state of it, image paths of it) of services
  • A: Adobe Acrobat Update Service, LocalSystem, Running, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\armsvc.exe"
  • A: Application Experience, localSystem, Running, C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
