Use WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation).

This book has 2 pages on WMI details, and 4 sample programs:
Win32 Perl Scripting: The Administrator's Handbook

This book has 7 pages on WMI details, and 4 code snippets:
Perl for System Administration: Managing multi-platform environments with Perl

A WMI tutorial, SDK, and documentation are available for download from Microsoft.

Working skeleton code, derived (and bug-fixed) from both books:

#!/usr/bin/perl -W # WMI_for_monks.pl use warnings 'all'; use strict; use Win32::OLE('in'); my ($Machine, $pid_to_kill) = @ARGV; $Machine =~ s{^[\\/]{2,}}{}; my $CLASS = 'WinMgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//' . $Machine; my $WMI = Win32::OLE->GetObject( $CLASS ) or die Win32::OLE->LastError(); foreach my $proc (in $WMI->InstancesOf('Win32_Process')){ next unless $proc->{ProcessId} == $pid_to_kill; printf "Killing:%7d\t%s\n", $proc->{ProcessId}, $proc->{Name}; $proc->Terminate(0); }

This command:
WMI_for_monks.pl COSMOS 952
produced this output:
Killing:    952 winbff32.exe

Use the Win32::Service

You have a function

StopService(hostName, serviceName) http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Reference/Products/ActivePerl/site/lib/Win32/Service.html

Strange by my reply disappeared.

Here it is again...

Sorry, usually when I get a process question, they mean service....

Take a look at Win32::Process

You will have a function

Win32::Process::KillProcess($pid, $exitcode)

Terminates any process identified by $pid. $exitcode will be set to the exit code of the process.
