I am not too sure what you are asking. There are no generic Python
features in the Service Control Manager - each service using Python is
completely stand alone.
win32serviceutil.py has code that interacts with the Service Control
Manager, including installing services using arbitary user names and
start modes. See win32serviceutil.HandleCommandLine().
