Find what files a program is using

I have a piece of software that contains data I would like to move to another computer. The problem is the program does not provide any way to export this data. Does any software exist that will let you know what files a program is using? I know there are programs that given a file, will tell you what program is using it but I'm looking for the opposite.

You can use Process Explorer's handle viewer (View->Lower Pane View->Handles) to see all of the files a process has open on a Windows machine.

Process Hacker is very similar to Process Explorer and is also free, but this one is open-source. It equally let you find which files are being used by a process.
