I am searching for a Windows utility that would allow me to select any standard Listbox control that is being displayed by any running application (commercial or otherwise), and copy all the entries in the listbox to the clipboard or a file.  I need to capture all the entries, not just the selected one(s), and it needs to work for single selection listboxes and comboboxes.  Any suggestions?

Try this utility and see if it captures enough:

Unfortunately, unlike most of Nir Sofer's utility programs, this one doesn't run from the command line.
