If you want your program to run on Win95, you can use the ToolHelp functions.
Search for "Taking a Snapshot and Viewing Processes" in your MSVC documentation.

Oh, why didn't you say so in the first place?

Here ya go:

#define STRICT
#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
#include <Windows.h>
#define WORD_CAPTION    "Microsoft Word"

BOOL CALLBACK FindWord(HWND hwnd, LPARAM lparam)
{
    char text[sizeof WORD_CAPTION];
    int len = GetWindowText(hwnd, text, sizeof WORD_CAPTION);
    if (len == (sizeof WORD_CAPTION - 1) && !lstrcmp(text, WORD_CAPTION))
        PostMessage(hwnd, WM_QUIT, 0, 0);
    return TRUE;
}

void main()
{
    EnumWindows(FindWord, 0);
}

I'm a bit stressed at work at the moment.
What seems to be the problem with the PView95 source?
If you have the makefile, just open it in the compiler and shoot.
