    System.Diagnostics.Process (MainModule throws Wind32 "Access Denied" exception)


    I'm trying to thumb through the list of currently running processes and search their descriptions

    Here is how I get the list of processes:

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

    Here is where the description is located:

    System.Diagnostics.Process foobarProcess;
    foobarProcess.MainModule.FileVersionInfo.FileDescription; //String value

    However, when I try to access anything under the MainModule property, i get a Win32 exception saying "Access Denied".

    textBlock.Text = foobarProcess.MainModule.FileVersionInfo.FileDescription.ToLower();

    I'm a noob, any help?
