How do I find the process of an open file?

6 posts in this topic

Thanks to the help on this forum I can get all the processes of applications running and their file paths. However I cannot seem to get the same information (In particular the path to the file) for a file opened by an application, for example a word document viewing a doc file or Adobe viewing a jpg file.

Do PID's exist for these items?

Is it possible to get the path to these open files?

Thanks

#include <file.au3>
$TestPath = _PathFull(@ScriptDir & "..\..\test")
MsgBox(0,"demo _PathFull",@ScriptDir & @lf & $TestPath)oÝ÷ Ûú®¢×¶>ºzËzÓZꮢעÉnuém>ºzË»x->ºzËzÓZí7ê#È

Not sure how those will do what I want. I don't want the parent window path I can do that and close it, I am after the child window path, that is the path to the file window opened within an application window.
