Property Arguments of ProcessStartInfo class is always empty


I had created a Windows Application ant put there the code down there. I am
trying to get information about the processes that are currently running in
my machine.

The problem is: "Arguments" property is always an empty string (the same
happens to "Filename" property).

Could it be a permission problem? My pc is running Windows XP SP1 and I
always run the application logged with a user that belongs to the
"Administrators" group, so he is an administrator.

I would appreciate some help.

Thank you.

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

DataTable dt = new DataTable();


dataGrid1.DataSource = dt;

Process[] procs = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses();

foreach(Process p in procs) {

dt.Rows.Add(new object[6] { p.ProcessName, p.StartInfo.FileName,

p.StartInfo.Arguments, p.MainWindowTitle,

p.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory });
