Attempting to collect Process Names from 32-bit app running on 64-bit W2k3 fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am having an Application build on Win32 Platform. This application enumerates available processes on the local machine. This application works fine on Win32 however it does not work on 64 bit.  It retrieves 32bit process names and fails to get 64bit process names. I read few questions on forums and they say that we cannot access 64bit processes from a 32bit application. However there are few methods such as EnumProcessModulesEx which can access both 32 and 64 processes. This method is available only on Vista 64.
    Is there any corresponding API which I can use it on Win2k3 x64 ? or anyother way we can access process names both 32 and 64bit on Win 2k3 x64 computer.
    Any help!!!
