as I understand it,  you wish to check to see when a specific outside application(not your application) starts.  

To do this, you need the class name, and caption.

if  FindWindow('TClass', 'Caption') <> 0 then    ApplicationIsRunning;

If you do not know the class name and caption of the target application, use Winsite(included with delphi).  Winsite will tell you the Class name, and caption of all running windows(child windows too).
