Description Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2015-01-23 17:03:10 UTC
1. Get a process from GetProcessById or GetProcesses
2. Set EnableRaisingEvents to true
3. Add a handler for the Exited event

Expected results:

Exited event handler is called when the associated process exits.

Actual results:

Exited event handler is triggered almost immediately.


	var cp = Process.GetCurrentProcess ();

	foreach (var p in Process.GetProcesses ()) {
		try {
			if (p.Id != cp.Id && !p.HasExited) {
				Console.WriteLine ("Name: {0} StartTime: {1}", p.ProcessName, p.StartTime);
				if (p.ProcessName.StartsWith ("ssh-agent")) {
					p.EnableRaisingEvents = true;
					p.Exited += (s, e) => {
						Console.WriteLine ("ssh-agent exited");
		} catch {

Output (even though ssh-agent is still very much alive):

    Name: ssh-agent StartTime: 12/31/1600 4:00:00 PM
    Name: lldb StartTime: 12/31/1600 4:00:00 PM
    ssh-agent exited

Works on MS.NET, not Mono 3.12.0 on OS X Yosemite.
