Hi all,

Struggling with python & XP again. My app needs to know if a certain program 
is running on my XP box

Ideal world - I can get the output of 'tasklist.exe' into a string.

I have tried

It throws the output to the terminal + I need the exact path to the executable 
(a bit of a trial)

it throws the output to a different window, but no exact path needed

Any ideas how I can catch the output ?
