"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.

Check out following API on MSDN -
EnumProcesses(...)
Sample for enumerating processes is also available on that page

If your Appliction is windowed Application you can also use - EnumWindows(...) API

Look for details of these API's in MSDN. You can also find some code/samples on www.codeguru.com and www.codeproject.com

Hope this helps
