I don't know if you are trying to write an application to do this or if you just want to do this. I'll guess the latter, this program does that but I don't know if it gets *all* the data you want. It is geared more toward what files is the program use at any given moment.


You won't be able to figure the files that aren't open though. That would require specific knowledge about every program out there.
You can also use File monitor to achieve the task.....

Sorry but my question is:

I have to solve a problem with a windows 3th party application.

I just want to know, when i click on specific exe, which files, dll, ocx, etc ... are invoked for execute the specified application.

There is some application for do this ?

Sorry for my bad english....
The "File monitor" from sysinternals can do most of what you want.... It will list all the files that any program opens for Read/Write during execution....
