  The SCM is the servies.exe program. Other programs using advapi32 
communicates with it using RPC. I've started writing it - see 
. The problems with widl are fixed so it should be possible to add this 
code to Wine. Probably this code should be updated to current Wine and 
I'm not sure if I moved all the database query function to services.exe 
(it's good to more them all in one go to avoid discrepancies between the 
current advapi implementation that relies on the current state of 
registry keys and services.exe that loads all the keys at start time and 
keeps them in memory).
  I may have some time to work on it and I can help if someone who wants 
to do it (if one wants to have an idea how the SCM works there is a 
chapter about it in "Windows Internals" by M. Russinovich and D. Solomon).
