ProcMon does not show executable

Randall Princeton 96 Reputation points

When executing ProcMon not all executables are showing up in the activity window. The executable I am interested in shows up in TaskMgr but not ProcMon. I've ensured all filters are off.
Please advise.
Thank you.

    Hello Mario,
    In providing you with additional information regarding not seeing executables in ProcMon, I stumbled upon something that has shed light on the issue. I execute this app (the one I thought was not showing up in ProcMon) from an application launcher. It appears that the executable I could not see is considered to be a child of the application launcher. When I expand the parent i.e., (Application Launcher) I can see the executable I thought was missing.
    Thank you for your assistance.
