Go to this page (http://www.fastlib.net) and download the ocx package, in the sample code who come with the package, you will find an example

cbonjovi,

This should have what you are looking for.  It retrieves all info about processes.  I have used this under NT and it works fine.

I do not know about Xp of 2K but I think it should be fine.

This API will allow you to get the Memory usage.  Is that the kinda thing you are looking for?

cbonjovi,

There are a number of different API's for interacting with the Process list, there are probably others but these are the main ones:

1. GetProcessHeap
2. GetProcessMemoryInfo
3. GetProcessTimes
4. GetProcessWindowStation
5. GetCurrentProcess

The API you will need is GetProcessTimes:

http://www.allapi.net/apilist/apifunction.php?apifunction=GetProcessTimes

This Link will explain the Code API for you and the following link will give you an example:

http://www.allapi.net/apilist/example.php?example=ProcessTimes

I hope this helps because I am running out of Ideas,

Good luck,

Ed.

No Elmo,
sorry for the later.
The GetProcessTimes API returns the time and date a process started...
What I need is:
any API or RegistryKey to get the CPU resources used by a process (I mean the one I see on Task Manager)

CBonjovi,

Maybe I am still unclear as to what you are looking for.

Is it the Image Name of the Process (Well a list of them)?

I am running under NT so When I look at the Task manager I see three tabs
1. Applications (List of apps currently running)
2. Processes (List of Process currently running)
    - Image Name
    - PID
    - CPU
    - CPU Time
    - Mem Usage
3. Performance (Shows CPU usage + mem usage)


Are you looking for any of these things?

Cheers,

Ed.

Chris,

This is not exactly what you are looking for but I think that it should help.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;q187913&

This link has code that will allow you to show all the processes listed in memory.  It works under NT or 95+.
