Follow the thread on this site: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=886987&page=356[^]. This should give you a couple of ideas on how to proceed.

Strictly speaking, the question makes no sense. What do you mean by the "instance"? You can get an instance of the process handle in the memory space of the calling process; you can also get a HWND of the main window, if any. That's pretty much all you can do. You can manipulate with this windows and even simulate input from keyboard and mouse. You cannot access process parameters or trigger any processing.
 
Did you know that all processes in the system are highly isolated? They even run in different address spaces. All the addresses and handles are different, even those representing shared and physically identical objects (which you cannot get in this case, except HWND and process handle).
