If running as a service you can try executing

instsvc q

from a command prompt.

Oh, but it told you everything. The cpl applet doesn't work for Classic,
so isn't installed, or, if it is on the system because it wasn't
uninstalled, should indicate that the server isn't running and fail to
start it (or generally make a mess of things if both classic and
superserver binaries are available.)

Don't forget you can script the install from a batch file. Details are in
the installation_readme.txt.
