hi,
Is it possible to query WMI to take only the owner of the processes?

My test, but it does not work:

ObjectQuery query = new ObjectQuery
("Select * from Win32_Process where Owner = 'LolaLola'");

Edited 6 Years Ago by Lolalola: n/a

When you use WMI to query running process you can use a WHERE clause when there is an available attribute, unfortunately Owner is not one of the attributes, there may be a way to resolve the process ID or Session ID to a specific Owner, possibly? At any rate, Here is some code that will retrieve every running process on the machine and under each process will be all of the attributes specific to the process as a child node, Create a windows form and add a Button and TreeView Control, then paste the following code accordingly, Hope this helps.
