Re: Getting a list of Processes


#1

fr Brad:

Sure, no problem… also, you can list more than the process name. I

like to show the PID and the executablepath, etc. Here are

other process

items you might like to examine:

class Win32_Process : CIM_Process

{

string Caption;

string CommandLine;

it would be nice if a particular ruby win32ole method can expose all
those attributes without looking thru msdn docs, no? similar to an ole
browser yet in ruby lib format…

thanks and kind regards -botp

I agree. I do it in Python (with the wmi module) like this:

c = wmi.WMI()
for item in c.Win32_Process():
print item

I don’t know who to contact about it. Is there a formal request process
for Ruby additions someplace?

Here it is…I think this is what you were looking for.
It displays all of the properties for a WMI Class.

require ‘win32ole’

class MyClass
def get_process_info()
procs = WIN32OLE.connect(“winmgmts:\\.”)
rst = procs.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM meta_class WHERE class =
‘Win32_Process’")
rst.each do |x|
puts x.path
.Class.to_s #The Class Name
x.properties
.each do |m|
puts " " + m.Name.to_s #Available Properties of this Class
end
end
end
end

a = MyClass.new
a.get_process_info()
