I want to convert process_id As Integer to a Process Object

 Public Function EnumWindowsCallBack(ByVal hwnd As IntPtr, ByVal lParam As Int32) As Int32
        Dim sSave As String
        Dim target_process_id As Integer
        Dim p As Process

        Dim items(5) As String

        target_process_id = 0
        GetWindowThreadProcessId(hwnd, target_process_id)
        If (target_process_id = 0) Then
            MessageBox.Show("Error finding target process ID")
            Exit Function
        End If

--------------->  Convert target_process_id to Process Object

So I can do thing like p.MainWindowHandle

Not sure if these are in fact the same values...try:

    Dim p As Process = Process.GetProcessById(target_process_id)

From: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/76fkb36k.aspx

    "The process identifier can be viewed in the Processes panel of the Windows Task Manager. The PID column displays the process identifier that is assigned to a process."
