Queries the current status for a service, returning an array of information.
The short name of the service.
The optional machine name. If omitted, the local machine will be used.
Returns FALSE on failure, otherwise returns an array consisting of the following information:
Which service controls are accepted by the service.
If the service exited, the return code from the process.
If the service exited with an error condition, the service specific code that is logged in the event log is visible here.
If the service is shutting down, holds the current check point number. This is used by the SCM as a kind of heart-beat to detect a wedged service process. The value of the check point is best interpreted in conjunction with the WaitHint value.
If the service is shutting down it will set WaitHint to a checkpoint value that will indicate 100% completion. This can be used to implement a progress indicator.
The Windows process identifier. If 0, the process is not running.
