Reveal the structure of your system with Process Tree

For Windows 95/98, NT 4.0, 2000, and XP
Process Tree Screen Shot


Process Tree displays active processes and DLLs in a tree organized by ownership. It reveals a unique view of your system as well as providing a convenient method of tracking and examining information about your system.

View your system by process or by DLL
There are two tree views. One is a process rooted view. Under each currently active process, are the processes that process has started and all DLLs that process is using. This reveals a real-time view of the Windows 95/98, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 architectures. The other view has DLLs at the root and under each DLL are the processes that DLL is currently in. This view can tell you what processes are currently using a particular DLL. A list view is also available, allowing you to list and sort items by various attribute values.

The program always maintains the current selection when switching views. This allows you to track a particular process or module from view to view. The program also has a search ability. With this ability you can, for instance, search for all modules containing "crt", revealing the different C run-time modules your system uses.

Dynamic Process Updating and History tracking
Process Tree can monitor the system for new and terminated processes. The monitoring is quick and the updating is smooth. Rather than refreshing and redrawing the entire tree, new processes are inserted into the tree, and terminated processes are removed from tree. When the History option is enabled, new processes are indicated in the tree, and terminated processes are not removed, but indicated as terminated. The History feature can be helpful in discovering the activity of complex operations and system services.

Displays information from the dumpbin and depends programs
If you have Microsoft Visual C++ installed on your system, Process Tree will use the dumpbin and depends tools included with this package to display additional information about processes and modules. With this feature, you can point and click to display information such as exports, imports, headers, raw data, and disassembly for any process or module.

Displays version information
Full version information from the executable file can be viewed in a property page for each module.

Other features

  • Flexible, intelligent, user interface
  • Search capability lets you search on the list on full or partial name, path, window title, etc.
  • Displays all windows organized by ownership.
  • System snapshots can be saved to a file and later opened. Viewing and exploring a "saved" system is identical to viewing and exploring a "live" system. It is also possible to view system snapshots saved on different systems. For instance, a snapshot may be saved on a Windows 98 system, then opened and viewed using Process Tree running on NT.
  • Using the Export Wizard you can export system information to an HTML page, or to a comma separated value text file suitable for importing into a spreadsheet.
  • Property pages for version information and process, module and window details.
  • Among other information the program displays for each process and module: executable name and path, module/process ID, and instance count.  Additionally for processes: main window title, thread count, and CPU and "alive" times. Additionally for each module: base address and memory size. Some of the above are available only on NT or only on 95/98.
  • Kill any process either gracefully or forcefully
  • A List view lets you view and sort processes and modules by any value.
  • Print the tree or list to your printer
  • Extensive Help
