I am trying to do the same thing. There are a variety of different ways to do this: 1) JNI -> A bit harder 2) Microsoft's JVM -> you can directly use win dlls without creating jni rapper dlls but you run into compatibility issues. 3) create c,c++ or vb program to get the list and then pipe that list into java program (not quite sure how to do this but certainly possible) let me know how successful you have been so far? And how r u distinguishing between running processes and applications? khurram.
