Using HookChildProcesses

The HookChildProcesses property applies to Windows and web application adapters. Use this property when the Path application or (StartPage property for web applications) launches other applications/processes and you want to interrogate all or some of the spawned applications.

  1. In this case, set the Path or the StartPage property to identify the application that spawns the other applications.

  2. Next, set the HookChildProcesses property to True so that you can interrogate any application that is spawned by the Path or StartPage application.

  3. Set the adapter's StartMethod property to Start.

Use the ExcludeProcesses property to define the applications or processes that spawned while the project is running but you are not going to interrogate or use in the project logic. For more information, see Excluding Processes for Use in Projects.
