About Windows Process

The Windows Process action can verify that one or more particular processes are or are not running on a client system.
The Windows Process action provides these configuration elements and options:
Continuously check the result and end the session if it changes
Specifies
Enabled
or
Disabled
.
When
Enabled
, if the client does not respond for five minutes, the server ends the session.
Expression
Specifies a Boolean expression to use to check for a process. The expression can include these wildcards: * and ?, and parentheses ( ) to combine values, and the logical operators AND, OR, and NOT. This is the syntax for a process check expression:
"
process name
" | (EXPRESSION) | NOT EXPRESSION | EXPRESSION AND EXPRESSION | EXPRESSION OR EXPRESSION
Double quotes (" ") are required around each process name.
Here is an example expression:
("winlogon.exe" AND "GoogleDesktop.exe") AND NOT "gator*"
. The expression checks running Windows processes for the presence of the winlogon.exe and GoogleDesktop.exe processes and the absence of any process with gator in the name.
