Scripting Win32 Provider Methods

Published: June 20, 2005

Scripting Win32 Provider Methods

This topic provides scripts that demonstrate using the Win32_Service class to start and stop Speech Engine Services (SES) and Telephony Application Services (TAS).

For more information, see the topic on the Win32_Service class.

Starting TAS

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='TAS'")

For Each objService in colServiceList
    errReturn = objService.StartService()
Next

WScript.Sleep 20000

Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Associators of " _
   & "{Win32_Service.Name='TAS'} Where " _
        & "AssocClass=Win32_DependentService " & "Role=Dependent" )

For Each objService in colServiceList
    objService.StartService()
Next

Stopping TAS

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Associators of " _
   & "{Win32_Service.Name='TAS'} Where " _
        & "AssocClass=Win32_DependentService " & "Role=Antecedent" )

For Each objService in colServiceList
    objService.StopService()
Next

WScript.Sleep 20000

Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
        ("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='TAS'")

For Each objService in colServiceList
    errReturn = objService.StopService()
Next

Starting SES

Starting SES requires starting dependent services, and so the script differs slightly from the TAS examples.

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='SES'")

For Each objService in colServiceList
    errReturn = objService.StartService()
Next

WScript.Sleep 20000

Stopping SES

This script stops SES and dependent services.

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Associators of " & "{Win32_Service.Name='SES'} Where " & "AssocClass=Win32_DependentService " & "Role=Antecedent" )

For Each objService in colServiceList
    objService.StopService()
Next

WScript.Sleep 20000

Set colServiceList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service where Name='SES'")
For Each objService in colServiceList
    errReturn = objService.StopService()
Next
