A RunningPackages collection that contains the RunningPackage objects that represent all the packages that are currently executing on the computer.

Administrators see all packages that are currently running on the computer; other users see only those packages that they have started.

The following code example shows how to retrieve the collection of running packages from the application object, and then iterate over each package, displaying the InstanceID, PackageID, PackageDescription, PackageName, and UserName.

'   Declare and instantiate objects here.
Dim app As New Application
' Create a RunningPackages collection, named pkgs, and fill it
' with the running packages from the application object.
Dim pkgs As RunningPackages = app.GetRunningPackages(Nothing) 
' Enumerate over each package in the collection and display some data.
For Each package As RunningPackage In pkgs
        Console.WriteLine("InstanceID: " & package.InstanceID.ToString())
        Console.WriteLine("PackageDescription: " & +package.PackageDescription)
        Console.WriteLine("PackageID: " & package.PackageID.ToString())
        Console.WriteLine("PackageName: " & package.PackageName)
        Console.WriteLine("UserName: " & package.UserName)
'   Insert more code here.
