private static string GetServicePath(ServiceController service)
{
    //construct the management path
    string path = "Win32_Service.Name='" + service.ServiceName + "'";
    ManagementPath p = new ManagementPath(path);
    //construct the management object
    ManagementObject ManagementObj = new ManagementObject(p);
    if (ManagementObj["pathName"] != null)
    {
        return ManagementObj["pathName"].ToString().Replace("\"", null);
    }
    else
    {
        return null;
    }
