# Thread: Changing the process name of Simba?

1. ## Changing the process name of Simba?

Hi guys, been a while.

I'm trying to change the Process name of Simba, on the off chance that the RS Launcher is spying on open programs and checking for the Simba process. How can I do this? I would guess that I would just have to recompile the program with the modified process name.

Are there any other solutions to this? Another option is to create a VM in the cloud and run Runescape on there, and then target the RDP window via Simba, but there's a pretty hefty monetary cost to this.

I really only need a keep-alive script, so the other solution seems a bit overkill.

Cheers

You can do it manually for now. I'm pretty sure they can detect 'black listed programs by name'
"To change the name of the process, click the Details tab and then click the Process Name link."

3. Well well well

I'm pretty sure there was a function like disguise ? or something of the like. Not sure if it actually changed the process name though

Appreciate you!
Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work.

Hehe. Just a few skills left to 200M all
I'm afraid I'd like to change the process name, ie what it shows in the TaskManager or whatever the C++ Windows wrapper returns.

5. Double post, but I've always been a renegade;

I changed the process title and description by recompiling the Simba source and editing Source/Simba.lpi on a few lines.
I changed the win64 compile filemame:
Code:
            <Filename Value="../Win64"/>
and the string table for the info

Code:
      <StringTable CompanyName="" FileDescription="" OriginalFilename="" ProductName="" ProductVersion="1.5"/>
