How to use sc.exe to find service dependencies

Windows services often have dependencies where starting one service requires that others already be running. Although you can view these dependencies using the Services.msc console, an easier way is to use the following two Sc.exe commands:

sc qc service_name will list all services on which the specified service depends

sc enumdepend service_name will list all services that depend upon the specified service.
