Obtaining process name using Process.ProcessName fails with theÂ following exception:
Message: Access is denied
StackTrace: at System.Diagnostics.ProcessManager.OpenProcess(Int32 processId, Int32 access, Boolean throwIfExited)
at System.Diagnostics.NtProcessManager.GetModuleInfos(Int32 processId)
at EnumProc.Class1.Main(String args)
You are unable to obtain the process name.
The Process Object uses performance counters to enumerate processes and obtain information about the processes like its name.Â If the process name was 15 characters or greater the process name was truncated. A bug was discovered that when you were seeking a process with a name that contained 15 or more characters, the process wasnâ€™t found because the comparison was made between the full name and the truncated name.Â To address this issue in the .NET 1.1 Framework, if they found a process name (ProcessName property) that was 15 characters or greater, the class would attempt to find the true process name by obtaining it from the process module information. This requires a process handle where the caller must haveÂ PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION | PROCESS_VM_READ to the process.
The Process objects assumes the caller has the above permissions to all processes on the system which may not be true.
The following solutions are available:
1. Use the .NET Framework 2.0.
2. Find the process and grant the caller the PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION | PROCESS_VM_READ permissions.
3. Rename the process name to 15 characters or less.
4. Terminate the offending process.
5. Ignore the exception if the name is not required.
