Hello,

I use function below to determinate is process is running or it is already terminated. While passing process ID as parameter it works perfect on WindowsXP, unfortunately it does not work on processes which was run by SYSTEM on Windows 2003. Function always return FALSE
through process is running.

function ProcessExists(PID: Cardinal): Boolean;
var
  x: THandle;
begin
  result := false;
  x := Openprocess(PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, false, PID);
  if x <> 0 then
  begin
    result := true;
    CloseHandle(x);
  end;
end;

Regards,
Tomas
