Determining whether another process is running

P: n/a
From within a vb.net app can I check to see whether a separate executable
process is running? I can see this process in Task Manager but I don't know
how to see if it's active from within my code.

Thanks.

Have a look at the 'System.Diagnostics.Process' class and its methods
'GetProcessesByName' and 'GetProcesses'.
