Process Explorer on Server Core

Filed Under (Server Core, Tools) by on 09-06-2008

While I’ve always been a fan of Task Manager but lets face the facts…its has its limitations.  Mark Russinovich has rolled up his wonderful Sysinternal Troubleshooting Utilities into a single download that can be found here.

In there you will find the ultra popular Process Explorer.  Well I wanted to test out some stuff on Server Core…like what type of tools will really work on it.  I copied over Process Explorer and it ran like a champ!  Now all I need to do is go into the Options menu and select Replace Task Manager and now when I enter taskmgr or hit CTRL-Shift-ESC Process Explorer opens instead of Task Manager.

…I wonder how many other Sysinternal tools work on Server Core…
