Good morning, all,

In a console application, how would I go about listing all the processes currently running by pID, and then terminating a process by pID?  The more info the better, I am *Very* new at this!  Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Tony

To 'Kill' (Terminate) a Process by PID use:

  int pid = ...;
  System.Diagnostics.Process process = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessById(pid);
  process.Kill();

To GET the processes you can use this:

  System.Diagnostics.Process[] processes = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses();
  foreach(System.Diagnostics.Process process in processes)
  {
    string processName = process.ProcessName;
    int processId = process.Id;
  }

eternal,

How do I actually display the processes in the console?  I put the above code (to get processes) and it compiles / runs fine...  but just gives me  a "press any key to continue".  I tried adding Console.WriteLine(processName, processID); to no avail.  Any suggestions? :)
