MsgBox App.FileDescription
MsgBox App.Title

or
Text1.Text = App.Title


You set these properties in the Make tab of the project properties window.

Sorry, I meant from another application, NOT running.
I can find the info in Task MAnager for the running apps.

Well not ofcourse.
The app can decide at runtime what the application title can be. So there is no way of telling when the app is not running.
You can read the registry for the installed applications, but that will only give you clue.
