Hi

I have two applications, the one should know if the other program is startet.
So my plan is that I send a message on startup and another one in the OnDestroy, but am I always sure that this message will be send if the program craches ?

Any ideas how to handle it.

Create a global WH_SHELL hook and you will be informed of all program starts and ends.
The hook has to reside in a DLL.

Hmm it seems like a bit of a overkill, is there not an easier way.

You'd have to check for the other program on a timer. Biggest drawback is the wasted resources of a constantly running routine on a timer in the first place.
