ste5an, I can't use tha api, because I'm using a development tool that generates the source code. I only can type c# source code, can't attach any extra DLL.

you can use shell command to execute task list on remote computer
put it in a string and locate your application

wmic /node: /output:d:\process.txt process get description,executablepath

and check this url to call it remotely

I've solved this issue using "MainModule.FileName" from System.Diagnostics.Process class.

Thanks all of you
