Hi,

I have to find the path file of another exe running parallel to my app. I will have to do this in runtime. This is a project in Visual Basic 6.0.

Can anybody help?

What do you mean by 'path file'?
Is it the directory where the other app is installed in?

Yes I want to have the path of the directory the other app is installed.

I am not sure if there is a direct way of getting the path of another app. One way could be having the 2nd app write it's path somewhere (in a text file for example) when it's launched. Then the 1st app reads the path from the text file.

how do you know which app you want?
There can be so many apps active on a Windows system...
