Hi, I can pull the process image names from taskmanger into delphi but I want to also pull in the description of each file.

                                           images name      username     cpu   memory     description
for example i can pull in:     sonicT.exe      
but i want to pull in:             sonicT.exe                                                         1.1.0

If you check your own process window you will see descripton at the far raght, well I need to pull that into delphi.
This is my code to pull in image names:


procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
MyHandle: THandle;
Struct: TProcessEntry32;
begin
try
MyHandle:=CreateToolHelp32SnapShot(TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0);
Struct.dwSize:=Sizeof(TProcessEntry32);
if Process32First(MyHandle, Struct) then
ListBox1.Items.Add(Struct.szExeFile);
while Process32Next(MyHandle, Struct) do
ListBox1.Items.Add(Struct.szExeFile);
except on exception do
ShowMessage('Error showing process list');
end
end;

what is this for ?

that's not the description, that's the file version !



function GetFileVersion(const FileName: TFileName): string;
var
  Major, Minor, Release, Build: word;
  size, len: longword;
  handle: THandle;
  buffer: pchar;
  pinfo: ^VS_FIXEDFILEINFO;
begin
    Major := 0;
    Minor := 0;
    Release := 0;
    Build := 0;
    size := GetFileVersionInfoSize(Pointer(FileName), handle);
    if size > 0 then
    begin
      GetMem(buffer, size);
      if GetFileVersionInfo(Pointer(FileName), 0, size, buffer)
      then
        if VerQueryValue(buffer, '\', pointer(pinfo), len) then
        begin
          Major   := HiWord(pinfo.dwFileVersionMS);
          Minor   := LoWord(pinfo.dwFileVersionMS);
          Release := HiWord(pinfo.dwFileVersionLS);
          Build   := LoWord(pinfo.dwFileVersionLS);
        end;
      FreeMem(buffer);
    end;
    result := Format('%d.%d.%d.%d',[Major, Minor, Release, Build]);
end;

MyHandle:=CreateToolHelp32SnapShot(TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0);
Struct.dwSize:=Sizeof(TProcessEntry32);
if Process32First(MyHandle, Struct) then
ListBox1.Items.Add(Struct.szExeFile);
while Process32Next(MyHandle, Struct) do
ListBox1.Items.Add(Struct.szExeFile);
except on exception do
