i am using the code from http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/torry/showcode.php?id=2010 to get a list of all running processes and their full path.

it returns the full path for most processes but not all - example for winlogon.exe or svchost.exe

anyone know how to get the full path for all processes?

You'll probly find that all of those ones that don't have a path are actually located in the Windows or Windows/System32 folders
