Visual Basic developer's world

List all running processes in Visual Basic
1. Create a new Standard Exe project in Visual Basic. Form1 is created by default.
2. Add a CommandButton to Form1.
3. Add a ListBox to Form1.
4. Copy the following code to Form1:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
List1.Clear
Select Case getVersion()

Case 1 'Windows 95/98

Dim f As Long, sname As String
Dim hSnap As Long, proc As PROCESSENTRY32
hSnap = CreateToolhelp32Snapshot(TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0)
If hSnap = hNull Then Exit Sub
proc.dwSize = Len(proc)
' Iterate through the processes
f = Process32First(hSnap, proc)
Do While f
sname = StrZToStr(proc.szExeFile)
List1.AddItem sname
f = Process32Next(hSnap, proc)
Loop

Case 2 'Windows NT

Dim cb As Long
Dim cbNeeded As Long
Dim NumElements As Long
Dim ProcessIDs() As Long
Dim cbNeeded2 As Long
Dim NumElements2 As Long
Dim Modules(1 To 200) As Long
Dim lRet As Long
Dim ModuleName As String
Dim nSize As Long
Dim hProcess As Long
Dim i As Long
'Get the array containing the process id's for each process object
cb = 8
cbNeeded = 96
Do While cb <= cbNeeded
cb = cb * 2
ReDim ProcessIDs(cb / 4) As Long
lRet = EnumProcesses(ProcessIDs(1), cb, cbNeeded)
Loop
NumElements = cbNeeded / 4

For i = 1 To NumElements
'Get a handle to the Process
hProcess = OpenProcess(PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION _
Or PROCESS_VM_READ, 0, ProcessIDs(i))
'Got a Process handle
If hProcess <> 0 Then
'Get an array of the module handles for the specified
'process
lRet = EnumProcessModules(hProcess, Modules(1), 200, _
cbNeeded2)
'If the Module Array is retrieved, Get the ModuleFileName
If lRet <> 0 Then
ModuleName = Space(MAX_PATH)
nSize = 500
lRet = GetModuleFileNameExA(hProcess, Modules(1), _
ModuleName, nSize)
List1.AddItem Left(ModuleName, lRet)
End If
End If
'Close the handle to the process
lRet = CloseHandle(hProcess)
Next

End Select
End Sub



5. Add a Standard Module to the Project. Module1 is created.
6. Paste the following code into Module1.

Public Declare Function Process32First Lib "kernel32" ( _
ByVal hSnapshot As Long, lppe As PROCESSENTRY32) As Long

Public Declare Function Process32Next Lib "kernel32" ( _
ByVal hSnapshot As Long, lppe As PROCESSENTRY32) As Long

Public Declare Function CloseHandle Lib "Kernel32.dll" _
(ByVal Handle As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function OpenProcess Lib "Kernel32.dll" _
(ByVal dwDesiredAccessas As Long, ByVal bInheritHandle As Long, _
ByVal dwProcId As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function EnumProcesses Lib "psapi.dll" _
(ByRef lpidProcess As Long, ByVal cb As Long, _
ByRef cbNeeded As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function GetModuleFileNameExA Lib "psapi.dll" _
(ByVal hProcess As Long, ByVal hModule As Long, _
ByVal ModuleName As String, ByVal nSize As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function EnumProcessModules Lib "psapi.dll" _
(ByVal hProcess As Long, ByRef lphModule As Long, _
ByVal cb As Long, ByRef cbNeeded As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function CreateToolhelp32Snapshot Lib "kernel32" ( _
ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal th32ProcessID As Long) As Long

Public Declare Function GetVersionExA Lib "kernel32" _
(lpVersionInformation As OSVERSIONINFO) As Integer

Public Type PROCESSENTRY32
dwSize As Long
cntUsage As Long
th32ProcessID As Long ' This process
th32DefaultHeapID As Long
th32ModuleID As Long ' Associated exe
cntThreads As Long
th32ParentProcessID As Long ' This process's parent process
pcPriClassBase As Long ' Base priority of process threads
dwFlags As Long
szExeFile As String * 260 ' MAX_PATH
End Type

Public Type OSVERSIONINFO
dwOSVersionInfoSize As Long
dwMajorVersion As Long
dwMinorVersion As Long
dwBuildNumber As Long
dwPlatformId As Long '1 = Windows 95.
'2 = Windows NT

szCSDVersion As String * 128
End Type

Public Const PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION = 1024
Public Const PROCESS_VM_READ = 16
Public Const MAX_PATH = 260
Public Const STANDARD_RIGHTS_REQUIRED = &HF0000
Public Const SYNCHRONIZE = &H100000
'STANDARD_RIGHTS_REQUIRED Or SYNCHRONIZE Or &HFFF
Public Const PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS = &H1F0FFF
Public Const TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS = &H2&
Public Const hNull = 0

Function StrZToStr(s As String) As String
StrZToStr = Left$(s, Len(s) - 1)
End Function

Public Function getVersion() As Long
Dim osinfo As OSVERSIONINFO
Dim retvalue As Integer
osinfo.dwOSVersionInfoSize = 148
osinfo.szCSDVersion = Space$(128)
retvalue = GetVersionExA(osinfo)
getVersion = osinfo.dwPlatformId
End Function


7. Run the project and click the Command button on Form1. You should see a listing of the currently running processes.
8. If you are running Windows 95/98, try running the example project on Windows NT or vice versa. The processes should be listed regardless of operating system version.
