A ProcessExists question

Recommended Posts

I notice ProcessExists doesn't detect Win3.1 (16 bits) programs. Is there anyway to detect these programs as well as using the other process functions on them?

Probably because it's running in a sandbox, aka "Dos Virtual Machine": The actual process is "ntvdm.exe". There may be a way to read the 16bit process handle from ntvdm.exe, dunno.

Try WinExists.

At the Windows Task Manager, these programs will be listed under 16 bit tasks. I will try to see if winexists helps. Thanks.
