I wrote a program in python that interacts with a Windows service. However, before doing it, I need check if the service is installed.
I'm using the following code to get the service. But if it not exists, I receive error.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "win32serviceutil.pyc", line 835, in SvcRun
File "main.py", line 54, in SvcDoRun
File "main.py", line 103, in main
File "main.py", line 57, in start_service
File "main.pyc", line 495, in QueryServiceStatus
File "main.pyc", line 80, in SmartOpenService
error: (1060, 'GetServiceKeyName', 'The specified service does not exist as an installed service')
It seems like a Try-Except block would be the easiest solution:
try: win32serviceutil.QueryServiceStatus('myservice') except: print "Windows service NOT installed" else: print "Windows service installed"
