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.

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