Executes a process on the same machine as the DEM that executes this activity.

Note:

vRealize Automation cannot present the UI from processes launched by the RunProcess activity to the user, therefore these process must be non-interactive. In order to avoid leaving orphaned processes on the DEM machine, the processes must also be self-terminating.
