How can some one determine what applications are running on a given server? This is a windows server. I think Windows 2000 server or may be newer. The applications could be .net applications or VB6 type of applications.

If you don't know even what the server is perhaps you should talk to your system administrator. – John Gardeniers Jan 29 '10 at 20:42

PsList should do the job nicely. I assume you're asking about checking the running processes on a server remotely. If you're actually logged in to the server, ProcessExplorer will give you a lot more detail.
