Using Delphi 1 (preferably) is there code available that would enable my application to detect the names of the programs currently running in memory?  (Preferably the text that appears in the program's title bar.)

Will it work with Delphi 2/3 under Win 95/98?

Commented:
Yes,
check your system32 dir for toolhelp32.dll(or something like that)

Are you saying that TOOLHELP and TOOLHELP32 are both DLLs?   I just assumed that TOOLHELP was a PAS file somewhere in the search path.   If these TOOLHELPs are DLLs, then that must mean I must distribute this DLL with my application?  No?

Commented:
Hi friends,
NO. do not worry, toolhelp is a DLL library which is a common system component for Win95(if Microsoft will not suprise use).  ToolHelp.pas is and interface unit to that dynamic link library. You do not need to distribute it. In the current situation if one has Win95 and does not have that library thatll be weird. So use it do not worry.
