    One way to do that is using PowerShell


    gwmi win32_process | select commandline, name | format-list


     I am sure you can massage the data a little better and use a filter to just find "httpd.exe".

    The simplest way is to use the builtin functions.


    let n = "TestComplete";
    let p = Sys.Find("ProcessName", n);
    p.Exists ? Log.Message(p.CommandLine) : Log.Message("Process " + n + " not found !");


    Or if the process to check is always the same :

    Sys.Process("TestComplete").Exists ? Log.Message(Sys.Process("TestComplete").CommandLine) : Log.Message("Process not found !");
