I would like to be able to get a list of all files that are currently open/in-use, and also be able to figure out which process has these files open.  Is there any way to do such a thing?  MFC or no MFC, either way is fine by me.  This would have to work for Windows 9x, ME, XP, etc.

Thanks!

I have done the similar task for UNIX... Here you have a link for finding out which process has an open file on a UNIX system
http://osr5doc.ca.caldera.com:457/OSAdminG/exam_files_open.html
However, I do not know, if this information is helpful for you on Windows . . .

For Windows, I found only this link
