Is the App running?

Is there a way to get AppleScript to recognize if an applicatin is *not* running? I need to have an app run all the time and if it quits unexpectedly, or someone unknowingly quits it, I need AppleScript to automatically start it again.

Hi

You need to create a script to run as an agent, you create an agent by setting the stay open option when saving your applescript application. You need to include a "run" and an "idle" handler and set its idletime to however frequently you want to check for the application. To check for the application use the following (substituting "Stickies" for whichever application you are checking for):

tell application "Finder"
      if (application "Stickies") is not in processes of it then
            tell application "Stickies"
                  activate
            end tell
      end if
end tell
