There is a way to get the list of all running process/taks on Windows using the wmic interface? Is there is another way other than the windows task manager?

This might have more information than you want, but this does return that information.

wmic process get *

I suggest adding this to the command >c:\temp\process.doc and open it in Word with the orientation set to landscape.

Here are others that retrieve a bit less data, so pick the one you want:

WMIC PROCESS GET name, processid

WMIC PROCESS GET name,processid /VALUE
