    I created a new Windows services management plugin.

    For Launchy version <a href="http://rapidshare.com/files/228553204/Servy_-_launchy_2.1.2.zip">2.1.2</a>: http://rapidshare.com/files/228553204/Servy_-_launchy_2.1.2.zip

    For Launchy version <a href="http://rapidshare.com/files/228552419/Servy_-_launchy_2.0.0.zip">2.0.0</a>: http://rapidshare.com/files/228552419/Servy_-_launchy_2.0.0.zip


    1. type: servy [service name]
    2. select the appropriate service from the list of suggested services
    3. press enter

    If the service is started, it will be stopped
    If the service is stopped, it will be started
    if the service is paused... you get the idea...

    1. type: servy [service name] [TAB]

    a list of possible actions will be shown (start, stop, pause, continue)

    2. type: servy [service name] [TAB] status [TAB]

    The service status will be shown

      Nice plugin, would be killer if we could connect to servers on our network and manage the services remotely.

        good idea, i'll work on it - of course, it will probably not be as responsive as the current plugin, because i'll need to query services and their statuses

    Any chance you could add a restart? I'd also like to be able to have the services at the top level and act on them in a similar way to the way Verby acts on normal Launchy items, e.g. mediaserver | restart.

    Hi all,
    I forgot about this forum, sorry.

    I've downloaded launchy 2.5.0 and the Servy plugin is working well - maybe 2.1.2 works.

    I will gladly add a restart option - anything else?

    I'm on windows 7 (64bit but that should not matter since launchy is running 32bit) and it does not work. I get the error:
    FATAL ERROR: Failed to initialize the Service Control Manager!

    This isn't a QT compatibility issue, only windows privileges issue - I managed to get it to work when running launchy as Administrator.
    I closed the launchy.exe process, ran it as administrator - went into plugin configs - got the message - closed launchy and then ran it again as admin - and now it works.

    right :-) how could I miss that, now it works for me too. Thx.

    would it be possible to show the status information right in the list where start and stop are shown?
