WMI.ProcessExists(iexplore.exe) always returns true (Windows 7 & IE9)

 When i try to use this function i always get a "True" value in return. Even if i check the task manager and no iexplore.exe process is running (I also tried to use this after restarting my computer and got the sdame result)

ANY help would be appreciated

    Hi Adi,


    I've checked this in TestComplete 9.10 installed on my computer and everything works fine. What TestComplete version are you using (Help |About...)?

    Keep in mind that an iexplore process MAY be running, but not under your user name...  

    something else you might try, just to make sure you're not crazy (something I need to do regularly).

    var p = Sys.WaitProcess('iexplore', 20000)

    if (p.Exists)


    Log.Message('The process exists')


    This will bypass the WMI code and go straight to just the windows process list to see if it's there.
