Hello and good evening! (or morning, depends where you are) I''m writing a small function that will check out the system to see if my game will run on it. Everything''s fine so far, I can check the CPU and OS. What I need now is to check if there are other running applications in the background, I know it''s possible but I don''t remember what API''s to use. Anybody? Thanks! - Ben

There is a way. I don''t know it, but there is . I would check for other threads running, and see what they are. Odviously there are gonna be some nessecary programs running (like some OS stuff), but thats probably a bad way. DONT quote me plz, im just high right now.

One of the programs that comes with Dev Studio lists all running processes. Is it WinSpy? or ?? I can''t remember. Anyway, check there. I believe you can get the source code if you check the box "include MFC source code" in the Dev Studio install.

Of course, this is all from remote memory, so I may be full of it. If I am, sorry!
