How do I determine if a non-delphi application, for example, a game, is running?  The proposed answer MUST work in both Win95 and NT, as well as Delphi 2.

If you know the application's window titlem or it's main window class, you can use FindWindow to check if a window with the specified properties exits. FindWindow will return the handle of the window, or 0 if the window doesn't exist.
