Iterates through process and their libraries

Following WPF application uses System.Diagnostics namespace to get the list of all running processes. Then for each process it get the list of attached modules and show the result in a TreeView control.

Following XAML code build the content of the window. Nothing fancy.

<Window x:Class=”Processes.Window1″
    Title=”Window1″ Height=”300″ Width=”300″>
    <DockPanel LastChildFill=”True” >
        <Button DockPanel.Dock=”Top” Name=”Button1″ Click=”Button1_Click”>
            Get All Processes
        <TreeView DockPanel.Dock=”Bottom” Name=”TreeView1″ >


And the code behind is:


public partial class Window1 : Window
  public Window1()

  private void Button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    foreach (Process process in Process.GetProcesses())
      TreeViewItem head = new TreeViewItem();
      head.Header = process.ProcessName;
      TreeViewItem files = new TreeViewItem();
      files.Header = “Modules”;
        foreach (ProcessModule module in process.Modules)
          files.Items.Add(new TreeViewItem
            Header = module.ModuleName + “:”
              + module.FileName + “(”
              + module.FileVersionInfo.FileVersion + “)”
      catch (Exception)
        files.Items.Add(new TreeViewItem { Header = “Access denied” });



The running result would be a simple window with only one button. Pressing the button loads the list of all process into the treeview:

    Similar concept, different data.
