Start application when another app. is opened

Hi.  I'm trying to buildind an addin for Kazaa.  Is there a way to open up my app whenever someone opens up kazaa?

Or do I just have it run in the background and check every few seconds for a Kazaa window?

if you dont want your program runnig in the background, you could try this, rename kazaa to something, code your app such that it opens the renamed kazza, name your app kazza.exe and place it in kazaa's directory.

No, I wouldn't like to change the original kazaa file name or anything like that.

then i think you will have to write another program that periodically checking if kazaa is running. but dont close the thread yet may be someone with a solution will come along :)

or you could witer a program that launches your app and kazaa, then execute it in place of kazaa

Thats a good idea, but then I'd have to change all the shortcuts that point to kazaa to my app.
