I have an application which needs to kill the WINWORD.exe process.

I am using the following process

Dim CProcess() As Process = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("WINWORD")
        For Each Program As Process In CProcess          

This is working fine in my machine. when the exe is put in client machine this is not working.
I think this is because, the client machine does not has the permission to kill a process, and Visual Studio has the same.

Anyone pleas help me out to solve this.

Thank you in anticipation............

YOu need administrator privileges to kill a process.
