  • In the OneCare firewall, you don't allow processes - you configure it to allow applications and ports. If your application is in development, each time you compile, it will need to be allowed once again. Not being a developer myself, I can't tell you if there are also ports or protocols to be allowed for your application to work.

    Open OneCare and change settings and then the firewall advance setting and add the getprocess to the allow list. I moved your post out of the off topic folder and into the firewall as you are not off topic.

  • I'm in LAN computer, my ip address is 192.168.1.3

    I try to know process on another  machine of the LAN

    Her ip address is 192.168.1.5

    On my machine there isn't SP3 only Windows Service Pack2, while on machine with address 192.168.1.5 there is

    Windows Service Pack3 and LiveOneCare.

     

    Listen this is my simply code, it's go in exception as InvalidOperationException with this message

    Couldn't get process information

     

    Dim PcName As String

    Dim remoteByName As Process()

    Dim findOutlook As Boolean

    Try

    PcName = "192.168.1.5"

    Try

    'Here goes in exception

    remoteByName = Process.GetProcesses(PcName)

     

    For Each Pr As Process In remoteByName

    If UCase(Pr.ProcessName) = "OUTLOOK" Then

    MessageBox.Show("On this computer there is OutLook program running")

    findOutlook = True

    Exit For

     

    Catch ex As InvalidOperationException

    MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)

    Catch ex As Win32Exception

    MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)

    Catch ex As Exception

    MessageBox.Show("Can't access the computer")

    End Try

     

    Then i remove SP3 and Liveonecare and problem there is again.

    Could be Account information or what ?
