Using wmic to get information about process.

wmic process where processid="<PID>"

gives many details (Caption, creationtime, arguments, ExecutablePath etc) . Right now I am processing the output to get name and process-executable-path. Is there any formatting option to get same result?

You're better off using Powershell's gwmi to more efficiently extract and format the data you want.
