is there any code to get the path of a running process from it's PID

$GetPath = _ProcessGetLocation("notepad.exe")

If $GetPath = -1 Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Unable get process path")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Success", $GetPath)
EndIf

Func _ProcessGetLocation($sProc = @ScriptFullPath)
    Local $iPID = ProcessExists($sProc)
    If $iPID = 0 Then Return SetError(1, 0, -1)
    
    Local $aProc = DllCall('kernel32.dll', 'hwnd', 'OpenProcess', 'int', BitOR(0x0400, 0x0010), 'int', 0, 'int', $iPID)
    If $aProc[0] = 0 Then Return SetError(1, 0, -1)
    
    Local $vStruct = DllStructCreate('int[1024]')
    DllCall('psapi.dll', 'int', 'EnumProcessModules', 'hwnd', $aProc[0], 'ptr', DllStructGetPtr($vStruct), 'int', DllStructGetSize($vStruct), 'int*', 0)
    
    Local $aReturn = DllCall('psapi.dll', 'int', 'GetModuleFileNameEx', 'hwnd', $aProc[0], 'int', DllStructGetData($vStruct, 1), 'str', '', 'int', 2048)
    If StringLen($aReturn[3]) = 0 Then Return SetError(2, 0, '')
    Return $aReturn[3]
EndFunc

He got his information from: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=306485

But if you want to use standard DLL params with DllCall() FreeFry has provided the correct link for the knowledge base.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
