CurrProcess utility displays the list of all processes currently running on your system.
For each process, you can view the list of all modules (DLL files) that the process loads into memory.

In addition, CurrProcess allows you to do the following actions:
- Change the priority of a process.
- Kill a process.
- Dump memory of process into a text file.
- Create HTML report containing information about a process with the list of all modules that it loads into memory.
- Save the list of all running processes into text or HTML file.
- Copy process or module information to the clipboard.

- New columns that displays memory information for a process (Only for Windows NT, 2000 and XP)
- New option: Beep On New Process - plays a beep when a new process is created.

This utility works properly under Windows 9x, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista. If you want to run this utility on Windows NT, you should download
the 'psapi.dll' and place it in your system32 directory.
Using The CurrProcess Utility
This utility is a standalone executable, so it doesn't require any installation
process or additional DLLs. Just run the executable (cprocess.exe) and start
using it. There is only one exception: If you want to run this utility on
Windows NT, you should download the 'psapi.dll', and copy it into the system32
The main window of CurrProcess utility contains 2 panes:
In both panes, you can change the order of the columns by dragging them to
the desired position, or by using the 'Choose Columns' dialog-box.
- The upper pane displays the list of all processes currently running on your system.
The list is automatically updated when a new process is loaded or an existing
process is terminated.
- When you select a single process in the upper pane, the lower pane displays
the list of all modules that the selected process loaded into memory.
By default, the modules list of a process is not automatically updated when a module
is loaded or unloaded from memory. If you want to automatically update the
modules pane of the selected process, select the 'Automatic Refresh' option under
the Module menu. Be aware that this option consumes more CPU resources.
Dumping Process Memory To File
CurrProcess utility allows you to scan a range of memory addresses of process,
and dump all its content into a text file. The text file created in this way
contains the memory data in hexadecimal format as well as in ascii format.
- If you select a large range of memory addresses, the memory dump file may
become very very large. Be careful when you select the desired memory range and
verify that you have enough disk space. However, if during the memory dumping process
you see that the file becomes very large, you can always stop the dumping process
by pressing the 'stop' button.
- Not all memory addresses are valid for a process. If you select a range of
invalid memory addresses, you'll get an empty dump file.
/pmhtml <Process> <Filename>
Creates process-modules HTML report for the specified process.
In the <Process> parameter, you can specify only the name of the process
(e.g.: 'explorer', 'explorer.exe', "iexplore") or the full path of the process filename
(e.g.: 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe').
You can also specify the ProcessID, by adding the '/' character as a prefix (e.g. /1560).
cprocess /pmhtml explorer.exe c:\temp\explorer.html
cprocess /pmhtml /944 c:\temp\explorer.html
cprocess /pmhtml "F:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" c:\temp\iexplore.html
/pmtext <Process> <Filename>
Similar to /pmhtml, but the report is saved to text file instead of HTML file.
/pmtabular <Process> <Filename>
Similar to /pmhtml, but the report is saved to tabular text file instead of HTML file.
||Saves the list of all processes into a regular text file.
||Saves the list of all processes into a tab-delimited text file.
||Saves the list of all processes into a tabular text file.
||Saves the list of all processes into horizontal HTML file.
||Saves the list of all processes into vertical HTML file.
