If services.msc produces a UAC prompt, it will get launched outside of the VE. You have two choices:

1: Use the 'sc query' command instead

2: Type the following command in the virtualised cmd.exe running services.msc to prevent the UAC prompt and therefore ensure it gets launched inside the bubble:

set __compat_layer=runasinvoker

(Please note there are two underscores at the beginning there)

The same issue affects regedit as described here in my blog, I suggest you have a read around the site for more useful App-V tips: http://packageology.com/2012/05/__compat_layer-troubleshooting-app-v-regedit/
