I'm looking for software that would monitor certain x, y locations on the screen and if say color changes from white (0, 0, 0) to red (255, 0, 0) it would activate c:/alert.exe

- Anyone came across software/anything like that?
- Maybe it's very easy to program in VB or PERL or other language?
- Or can anyone think of any other way to monitor 20 critical programs (like DOS screens that run and if they crash they go red...) and need to be restarted... but we have no access to modify their code.

I appreciate your help?

you could run them from your app and redirect the standard output ... then parse their output directly.
