I wanted a way to view all processes, and possibly kill a process, on my Pocket PC - from my desktop computer. This is the reason I wrote this utility. It should also display processes on Windows 95, and up, and Windows NT4, and up (not fully tested). It's very simple - but I find it useful...

Comments? Suggestions?

Thanks, very nice.

Only one suggestion - have the list expanded, in both treeview and listview mode.

Yes, I thought about that. The problem is that if you have a Pocket PC (or Smartphone), there will be a second root item. I don't know this until after a few seconds, when that initialization thread is done. If you are interested in the Pocket PC processes, expanding the desktop computer's processes might be annoying (you have to scroll down first). If there is no Pocket PC attached, it makes (of course) more sense to expand the only node. But again, I don't know this until after a few seconds...

Can you detect the different platform? If so, you could expand for the Desktop PC and not for the Pocket PC or Smartphone. I don't think a couple of seconds would be a problem.

I have added a 'Fully Expanded' command to the View menu, so we both can get what we want (hopfully ;) ).

That's great, thanks.

edit:

How about a refresh after a process has been killed ?

Not sure, but it seems to be a slight 'delay' in the information from Windows. I need to investigate some more...

I have tested on my Win2K Pro, and I can't recreate the problem. I have done some changes, and fixed an 'appearance' problem on Win98.

Any change with this version...?!
