Hi,
is it possible to get all currently running applications that have an own window(e.g. word, IE, tec.)?

Hi Michael -
I can't make out what you are asking. Could you offer a little more detail please?

Hi Michael,
thanks for your reply. I want my Javaprogram to get all currently running programs. So if I start Word, the IE, the explorer, and then my little Javaprog, it should be able to recognize that Word, the IE and the explorer are "opened".
I hope it's a bite clearer now.
Greetings,

there's no way to easily do that from java - you'd have to kick off some native code to get that info (if available)
