Get Time User has been in program?

How can I know how long it a program has been opened? I see a Environment.Tickcount but how can I convert that to a time in hours, minutes and seconds?

I did, and it's a very cool site. But I don't see how this can help me. I don't know java.

This is another helpful  website http://developer.apple.com/documentation/mac/Toolbox/Toolbox-80.html 
It will give you an idea that 1 tickcount = 1/60 of a second. You can get an idea but it wont be accurate.

I hope this helps.

site is not of value
and I don't see how it can be 1/60 of a second when tickcount is a millisecond, wouldn't that be 1/1000 of a second?

Are you looking to write a script/program to determine the tickcount?

I guess I can convert tickcont into the proper amount of hours, minutes, seconds
but then how can I make that into a time. I can do TimerSerial but that seems to give me a time based on the clock, meaning, if I have tickcount that converts to 32 minutes and 12 seconds if I put this into TimeSerial (0,32,12) I get something like this:
#12:32:12 AM# but what I'm looking for is this:
00:32:12

maybe I just have to build a string.
I just thought there should be a built in function to give me the time (in time) that a program has been running
