How to start service Windows with TestComplete

Hi guys!
I'm using Windows 10 and TC 15.54.
Using WMI.GetServiceState I can get the status of the service, in this case it is Stopped.
How do I start this service through TestComplete?

I already tried, but it didn't work...

 

var ServiceName = 'Sysmo S1 Task Scheduler';

WshShell.Run("net start" + ServiceName);

  • Yes, it works... I solved it by opening the CMD screen and running there 🙂

    You might not have elevated privileges to run WshShell.Run, as the permissions are inherited from TC. If you were to run TC as an Administrator, then it will work.

      Hi rraghvani!

      I tried to start TC as an administrator, and run the command WshShell.Run("net start" + ServiceName); but it still didn't start the service ğŸ˜ž

    I've just tried this, and it works

    I noticed that you are missing a space after start, so your string looks like this,

    net startSysmo S1 Task Scheduler

      Even though you change it, the service still doesn't start WshShell.Run("net start " + ServiceName);
