remote app folder path

I'm developing an application that monitors the remote execution of another application and need to get the full path folder where such application is stored.

what would be the best way to get that info?

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
