Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public string FileName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The fully qualified path that defines the location of the module.

If the file name is longer than the maximum number of characters allowed, the file name is truncated.

The following code example creates a new process for the Notepad.exe application. The code iterates through the ProcessModuleCollection class to obtain a ProcessModule object for each module in the collection. The ModuleName and FileName properties are used to display the module name and the full path information for each module.

Process myProcess = new Process();
// Get the process start information of notepad.
ProcessStartInfo  myProcessStartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo("notepad.exe");
// Assign 'StartInfo' of notepad to 'StartInfo' of 'myProcess' object.
myProcess.StartInfo = myProcessStartInfo;
// Create a notepad.
myProcess.Start();
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000);
ProcessModule myProcessModule;
// Get all the modules associated with 'myProcess'.
ProcessModuleCollection myProcessModuleCollection = myProcess.Modules;
Console.WriteLine("File names of the modules associated "
   +"with 'notepad' are:");
// Display the 'FileName' of each of the modules. 
for( int i = 0;i < myProcessModuleCollection.Count; i++)
{
   myProcessModule = myProcessModuleCollection[i];
   Console.WriteLine(myProcessModule.ModuleName+" : "
      +myProcessModule.FileName);
}
// Get the main module associated with 'myProcess'.
myProcessModule = myProcess.MainModule;
// Display the 'FileName' of the main module.
Console.WriteLine("The process's main module's FileName is: "
   +myProcessModule.FileName);
myProcess.CloseMainWindow();
