"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First, read the following microsoft KB article:

HOWTO: List Running Processes 
Then what you could do is use the winsock control running as a server to write the list of processes to the socket.

Hope this helps!
