[Nagiosplug-help] NSCLIENT - Monitoring a service with space character in its real name

We're having trouble using "check_nt" (NSCLIENT plug-in) to monitor services that have a space character in its name (e.g. "Service ABC").
I read the following post   http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=8135478

, and looking at the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services) one of the services really didn't have a space in its real name, and it solved the problem for this particular service :)


Still, there is another service that has a space in its real name, therefore it still doesn't work: check_nt_service can't monitor it. (This is a commercial application and we can't modify its code/installation...)

Changing the service real name in the registry causes the service to stop responding to stop/start commands.


I also couldn't find any more posts on this subject in the archives :(
I know this is an old issue, but can anyone provide further help on this?
Is there a way around the problem or do we have to require real service names with no spaces?
PS: I also have a problem with a service with an hyphen '-' in its real name...
Best Regards,
Luís Noronha
