If you want to delete an exe file, try this :

$_ProcessName = "notepad.exe"
$_Path = _ProcessGetPath ( $_ProcessName )
ConsoleWrite ( "$_Path : " & $_Path & @Crlf )
ProcessClose ( $_ProcessName )
;FileDelete ( $_Path )

Func _ProcessGetPath($PID)
    If IsString($PID) Then $PID = ProcessExists($PID)
    $Path = DllStructCreate("char[1000]")
    $dll = DllOpen("Kernel32.dll")
    $handle = DllCall($dll, "int", "OpenProcess", "dword", 0x0400 + 0x0010, "int", 0, "dword", $PID)
    $ret = DllCall("Psapi.dll", "long", "GetModuleFileNameEx", "long", $handle[0], "int", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($Path), "long", DllStructGetSize($Path))
    $ret = DllCall($dll, "int", "CloseHandle", "hwnd", $handle[0])
    Return DllStructGetData($Path, 1)
