    I have a requirement wherein I need to check if the exe is running on the client side or not. What is the best way to achieve that?

    We have already tried the process approach where we try to access the process name on the server side.

    You don't have this level of control from a web app. If using a web site from tightly controlled machines you could use WMI maybe.

    Maybe the big picture could help. This is a kind of inventory/monitoring app ???

    the easiest way is to change the exe to call the web server on a timer to let the web server know its running.
