Process Name

Recommended Posts

Hey, this is probably a simple question, i've seen it done. but you konw how when you run your program and look it up in the taskmanager, its generally the file name? how can I change the process name? I want my program to be securely run from a starter program, named Run.exe, but I dont want it to show as that on the task manager, I would want it to say "Application Launcher.exe" or something.

Thanks, MethodZero

To change that, you would have to modify task manager, or hook the native api calls it uses to retrieve that information.

An easier way:

FileInstall("Application Launcher.exe","Application Launcher.exe")
Run("Application Launcher.exe")

^ That would be your Run.exe. And just have Application Launcher.exe delete itself when finished.
