We need you to create a Windows service (must run under Xp, Vista and Win 2003 server) with tray icon.
General idea is to monitor several windows services on target pc. Using ip, logon credentials and service names from .ini file. If service is not started, email with failed service name in header must be sent. No GUI, just tray icon shows service is running or stopped. Everything will be on LAN so firewalls are no concern in this issue.
Options included in ini file:
Sample ini file
; smtp settings
SmtpServer=[url removed, login to view]
SmtpFrom= [url removed, login to view]
SmtpTo= [url removed, login to view]
SmtpSubject= "Service %servicename% is stopped!"
SmtpBody= "Service %servicename% on %servername%, IP %ip% is stopped at %timestamp%"
SmtpEnabled=0 ; smtp notification values 1 is on, 0 is off
;Target computer Ip and credentials
;Services list - here should be all monitored services
Interval=5 ;each x seconds to check desired services
