Well, as that example said, it was designed to show
automatic services which are not running. If you don't
have any then nothing will show. I assumed you could
use this as a starting point.

To list all services try this:

<code>
import wmi

c = wmi.WMI ()
for service in c.Win32_Service ():
  print service.Caption

</code>

To show a specific service:

<code>
import wmi

c = wmi.WMI ()
for service in c.Win32_Service (Caption="Task Scheduler"):
  print service

</code>
