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.
ProcessModule myProcessModule;
// Get all the modules associated with 'myProcess'.
ProcessModuleCollection myProcessModuleCollection = myProcess.Modules;
Console.WriteLine("Base addresses of the modules associated "
   +"with 'notepad' are:");
// Display the 'BaseAddress' of each of the modules.
for( int i = 0; i < myProcessModuleCollection.Count; i++)
   myProcessModule = myProcessModuleCollection[i];
   Console.WriteLine(myProcessModule.ModuleName+" : "
// Get the main module associated with 'myProcess'.
myProcessModule = myProcess.MainModule;
// Display the 'BaseAddress' of the main module.
Console.WriteLine("The process's main module's base address is: "
