List All Shared Memory Names?


Hi.

Is there a way to get a list of all the shared memory names (setup by
OpenFileMapping & MapViewOfFile) of all applications running under
windows?

Thanks!

Hi Alex,
Try Process Explorer. Access the following link to understand PE and download.

Note: Shared memory is called as Sections (Handle) in Windows. You might probably have to look for Section Handles.

Also you can check Process Monitor (Not sure if it helps)
