That seems... well my memory probably fails me. I don't use Windows (for various reasons) but I thought OSProcess worked there. I could be wrong, though. 

The man you are probably looking to talk to is almost certainly David T. Lewis, and he's a really nice guy. I'm sure if you hang in there he'll be able to give you some direction if nothing else.

I'm also sure that he'll notice the thread. Might take a small amount of time though. Folks have lives to live and such. 

Wish I could help. If you wait a few days, I bet you'll have a real answer.
