ITaskService::GetRunningTasks method (taskschd.h)

Gets a collection of running tasks.

Note  ITaskService::GetRunningTasks will only return a collection of running tasks that are running at or below a user's security context. For example, for members of the Administrators group, GetRunningTasks will return a collection of all running tasks, but for members of the Users group, GetRunningTasks will only return a collection of tasks running under the Users group security context.

HRESULT GetRunningTasks(
  LONG                   flags,
  IRunningTaskCollection **ppRunningTasks
);
