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

but it gets the path for notepad which is in the same folders you give so i don't understand why it fails to get the path of the other files

winlogon.exe
svchost.exe

Which user created them? These are more system files....

but if the code returns the files in the list and the paths for the others then is ther no way to get it to return the path for those that it didn't like winlogin.exe, etc
