Hi Experts,

I am looking for at counding the number of active threads at any one time.

The best I can do is

Imports System.Diagnostics
Imports System.Threading


Class Form1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load


        Label1.Text = "Processes Name"

        Label2.Text = "Total = "

        Button1.Text = "Get Current Processes"





    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim count As Integer = 0

        label2.Text = "Total = "

        Dim prs As Process() = Process.GetProcesses()

        ListBox1.Items.Clear()

        For Each proces As Process In prs


            count += 1


            ListBox1.Items.Add(proces.ProcessName)
        Next

        Label2.Text += count.ToString()

        Dim proc As Process = Process.GetCurrentProcess()
        MsgBox("Number of Threads active: " & proc.Threads.Count.ToString(), MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Threads Active")

    End Sub




End Class


The problem is I originally tapped this up in VS2010, and throught bonza, its working... on an Windows Server 2003 box in a development environment it again showed consisten results, however it didnt run on the production box because of not having .NET 4 installed so dropped it down to .Net 3.5 via VS 2008 and then the thread count is out by 7 on the dev box, but spot on on my machine where it was originally built.

Any ideas welcome...

Thanks

Simon

Are you comparing the count with Task Manager count?

not yet..

what i actually want to do is count for a specific application but at the moment I just need some consisten results..

the task manager is reading over 1400, the one above is reading between 12 - 15 via .Net 4 and 5 on .Net 3.5.

i know its out becsause both the .net 3.5 and .net 4 versions of the app were both run on the dev box at the same time.

If you step through the code and

 Process.GetProcesses()

is return a different number of items in both apps then I think you would need to abandon the process class and use win32 API calls to get process and thread information.
