Download Windows Platfrom SDK from MS site.
You need in two self-exctracting exes: winbase.exe and sdktool.exe.
There is sample you looking for in samples\sdktools\winnt\pviewer

toolhelp32 isn't available under nt today, but will be in nt 5.  In the meantime, you'll need to use psapi.dll

NickRepin, it is necesary for me to download over 20Mb and then find the answer, just to know how to retreive the list of current process in Windows NT ?

NO! As I said, you need only in http://msdn.microsoft.com/developer/sdk/sdktools.htm (sdktools.exe) and, if sdktools will not extract alone,
http://msdn.microsoft.com/developer/sdk/bldenv.htm (bldenv.exe).
If I'm not wrong, they are much less than 20 MB

Get a list of processes has not always been easy, although you may think that it should be.  The official way used to be to go through the performance registry.  Now, PSAPI (or toolhelp32 under 95 and NT5) is used.
