Can SilkTest be used to Stop/Start/Pause Windows services?

It is possible to manipulate the Services in a Windows environment with SilkTest as long as you have the correct security privileges. This can be done by using the " net " command through a command line to stop/start/pause the Services. For example:

SYS_Execute ("Net Start MyService")

This will start a service called MyService. This will also work with "Stop" and "Pause", but will only pause Services, which have this option available.
