Hi!
   I need to know a procedure or routine that tells you what apps are running under windows 95. I'm writing an app which should say which apps are currently being executed in the win95 operating system. I know there is EnumWindows but I don't know how to use it. Please Help!

EnumWindows() will not help.  It will miss processes that do not create top-level windows.

Under Win95, you should use the ToolHelp functions.  The MSVC help tells you how.
Search the help for "ToolHelp Library" (there's a code example under "Taking a Snapshot and Viewing Processes").

Oh, by the way.  Such questions are better posted in the "Windows programming" area.
Better chance to get a good answer.
