Just heading out the door to the office, but I did find something that may be of some use to you:
This is a Labview implementation of a task manager like application. View the processes, select one to view CPU load and memory consumption. A new feature is the memory deallocation control, just in case the process start consuming to much memory.
Might not be exactly what you need. But could be of some use.
I'm surprised as well that there are not more functions available to access system functions.
sort of defeats the system independent G programming when you have to manually interface to windows DLL's.
Had to resort this several times as well (for example, get the user directory).
Would be nice if labview would provide more of these functions build in.
