Hi Sandya_116

Copy the following function to your project and use it like this: FindProcess("Server", "cmd")

    Private Function FindProcess(ByVal MachineName As String, ByVal ProcessName As String)
        Dim PList() As System.Diagnostics.Process
        Dim Res As Boolean = False

        PList = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses(MachineName)

        For i As Integer = 0 To PList.Length - 1
            If PList(i).ProcessName = ProcessName Then
                Res = True
                Exit For
            End If
        Next

        If Res = True Then
            MessageBox.Show("Process: """ & ProcessName & """ found on machine: " & MachineName)
        Else
            MessageBox.Show("Process: """ & ProcessName & """ not found on machine: " & MachineName)
        End If
        Return Res
    End Function
