GSD (Get Service DACL) gives you the DACL (Discretionary Access Control List) of any service you specify as a command line option.
Download the exe file and run it from the Command Prompt. It will give you the instructions you need. The service name to give as a parameter is the same name as you can see in the services applet in the control panel. GSD only works if your account is in the Administrators group.
Q: How do I redirect or stop the output?
A: You can redirect the output to a file by appending for example "> file.txt" at the end of what you write at the Command Prompt. You can stop the output by appending "| more".
Q: What do you mean by "the DACL of a service"?
A: All services have corresponding DACL's which control access to them - services are securable objects in Windows NT. This isn't the same thing as the permissions set on the services registry keys, but instead, permissions set on the services as objects.
Q: When I double-click on the file a window comes up and disappears immediately. What's wrong?
A: You must run the file from a Command Prompt.
