Process ‘& Module Enumeration Class

This article presents a class (CPSAPI) which can be used to enumerate all of the
processes, modules and even device drivers currently executing on either a
Windows 9x or Windows NT machine.

As you can see in the provided demo application, this class is extremely easy
to use. All you need to is the following:

  • Derive a class from the CPSAPI base class

  • Implement the derived class’ OnXXX method that correlates to the desired function:

    • virtual BOOL OnDeviceDriver(LPVOID lpImageBase);

    • virtual BOOL OnProcess(LPCTSTR lpszFileName, DWORD ProcessID);

    • virtual BOOL OnModule(HMODULE hModule, LPCTSTR lpszModuleName, LPCTSTR lpszPathName);

  • Instantiate your object

  • Call the object’s Initialize method

  • Call the desired enumeration function:

    • BOOL EnumDeviceDrivers(void);

    • BOOL EnumProcesses(void);

    • BOOL EnumProcessModules(DWORD dwProcessId);

If this sounds a bit difficult, not to worry. A demo application I included with this article
illustrates how to do all this.
