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
