Assuming you are using vb.net you can use the following example:
Label1.Text = My.Application.Info.Title  'Gets the application product title
Label2.Text = My.Application.Info.ProductName  'Gets the application productname info
Label3.Text = Me.Text  'Gets the form 'text' property

Open in new window

Then you need to find the class name of the test.exe application and use the window handle returned by the FindWindow API in your call to GetWindowText.

See this article for more then combine it with the links in my previous post.
