How to detect if my application(xx.exe) is already running?
Posted on 1997-07-21
I would like to know how I can detect if my application is
already running? The reason is that, I would like to avoid
my application being started again if the application is already running, why not just use the running app. And I would not have more than one of my application sitting on the taskbar. I have seen some program/application being able to handle this (eg, Microsoft Word.. that when I double click on xx.doc, it will start MSWord.exe, but if MSWord.exe
is already running, then it will just use that window, and open up this xx.doc file).
Any sample or document related to this will be great. Thanx.
