Way to get the calling executable?

4 posts in this topic

Is there a way to tell whether my exe was kicked off by something else (say... another program??) and if so, what WMI class would I look in or DLL or etc? Pls. help! TIA

You want the PPID (Parent Process ID).

You could use _ProcessGetProperties() or code something more limited to your needs.
