My script not able to start the service once it executes the code "Win32::Service::StartService("", $serviceHash{$key});". Please help me.

#!C:\Perl64\bin\perl.exe use Win32::Service; #set up a hash of known service states my %statcodeHash = ( '1' => 'stopped.', '2' => 'start pending.', '3' => 'stop pending.', '4' => 'running.', '5' => 'continue pending.', '6' => 'pause pending.', '7' => 'paused.' ); my %serviceHash; #go get 'em... Win32::Service::GetServices("", \%serviceHash); foreach $key(keys %serviceHash){ my %statusHash; Win32::Service::GetStatus("", $serviceHash{$key}, \%statusHash); if ($statusHash{"CurrentState"} =~ /[1-7]/){ print $serviceHash{"$key"} . " is currently " . $statcodeHash{ +$statusHash{"CurrentState"}} . "\n"; if (( $serviceHash{"$key"} =~ /SensrSvc/ ) && ($statcodeHash{$sta +tusHash{"CurrentState"}} =~/stopped/ )) { # Win32::Service::StartService("", $serviceHash{$key}); system `net start "SensrSvc" `; print "$serviceHash{$key} !!! \n" ; } } }

    My aim is to start a win service in a remote windows box through perl.

    Why don't you specify a hostname, if that is your aim?

    for diagnostic info try using  Win32::Service...() or die $^E ;

    Is your code authorized to do so?
      Well actually thats where I am confused. I could able to fetch the status by Win32::Service::GetStatus(); But not able to start it by using GetStart() API.

        Can you start the service with net start?
