Hello all,

We are trying to make a service that is monitoring if a spesific program is still responding (like the windows taskmanager also displays). For now we haven't got it to work properly.

The basic stuff:
- We are not able to modify the code of the program we need to monitor
- We've managed to get the threadid, processid etc. but are not able to query the status...
- If we use FindWindow('TApplication','TApplicationTitle') then it's always responding, even if the taskmanager is saying it is not responding.

Help would be appreciated
