Release Notes

JobObjectWrapper Beta 1

This is the Beta 1 release of the JobObjectWrapper project. The Beta 1 is feature complete. It is not fully tested. Beta testers are welcome.

To use the Job Object Wrapper, download the JobManagement.dll and InJobProcessCreator.exe files. Both have to be in the running directory of your application. You will need the Visual C++ 2005 SP1 runtime library installed on your machine.

The source code can be found in the JobObjectWrapper Sources archive. Open it with VS 2005, or upgrade the solution to VS 2008.

On VIsta, If you start Visual Studio from Windows Explorer, it put it under a Job. To be able to run the examples from Visual Studio, you must run it from command line (the executable for the Visual Studio IDE is devenv.exe).

To see if your process is part of a job, you can use Process Explorer. Processes running within a job will be highlighted in brown by default.

Project Description
A job object allows a group of processes to be managed as a unit. Job objects are namable, securable, sharable objects that control attributes of and assign limits to the processes associated with them. Operations performed on the job object affect all processes associated with the job object.
JobObjectWrapper is a .NET abstraction over the Win32 Job Object. With this library you can create job objects, create and assign a process to the job, control process and job limits, and register for the various process- and job-related notification events.

Usage Example:

using System;
using JobManagement;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace ConsoleApplicationTestJob
class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
JobObject jo = new JobObject();
jo.Events.OnExitProcess += new jobEventHandler<ExitProcessEventArgs>(OnExitProcess);
jo.Limits.ActiveProcessLimit = 4;
jo.Limits.Affinity = new IntPtr(1);

ProcessStartInfo si = new ProcessStartInfo("whoami", "/all");
si.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
si.UseShellExecute = false;
si.CreateNoWindow = true;

Process p = jo.CreateProcessSecured(si);
while (!p.StandardOutput.EndOfStream)

foreach (System.Diagnostics.Process process in jo.ConstructAssignedProcessList())
Console.WriteLine(process.ProcessName + " " + process.Id);

static void OnExitProcess(object sender, ExitProcessEventArgs args)
Console.WriteLine("Process {0} has exited", args.TheProcess == null ? args.TheProcessId.ToString() : args.TheProcess.ProcessName);
