in reply to Check if a process is running on Windows

From the description for Proc::Background, "This is a generic interface for placing processes in the background on both Unix and Win32 platforms. This module lets you start, kill, wait on, retrieve exit values, and see if background processes still exist."

update: While you're there, Win32::Process::Info has the  @info = $pi->GetProcInfo (); method which should return a host of information on every process running (except the idle and system processes) including the executable path and name.
