If I execute the following command via the command line:-

wmplayer.exe /play "c:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.VOB"

Is there any way to get info for the running process from the system that also includes the full command line executed (similar to ps -aux on Linux)?

"tasklist /v" only tells me that "wmplayer" is running, not which file is playing (e.g. c:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.VOB)

The sysinternals.com command pslist doesn't appear to give me that info either. Is it possible to do this on Windows?

I'd appreciate any help you can offer me.

Kind Regards,



Sysinternals.com procexp (Process Explorer) can also do this. Think of it as task manager on steroids. Double-click on the process name, and the Image tab will show you the command line. Process Explorer will also let you see all files & handles the process has open, and will let you force close individual handles among other useful functions.
