Hi,
how can I get the entries in the tasklist (Win NT40).  I have to wait untill a task (from a install program) is closed. Is there any access to the tasklist in Visual C 4.2? Thank you for helping me.

The process status helper functions make it easier for you to obtain information about processes and device drivers running on Microsoft Windows NT. These functions are available in PSAPI.DLL, which is distributed in the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit (SDK) (http://www.microsoft.com/msdn/sdk). The same information is generally available through the performance data in the registry, but it is more difficult to get to it. Take a look at the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q175/0/30.asp. Also, take a look at the SDK Tool Windows NT samples "Pviewer: Process Viewer" and "Tlist: Task List".
