Hello

   I made a simple method to check if there's an application running or not, it's based on the application title, so you can use it for any application you would like ;-)

====
bool AppIsRunning(string s)
            {
                  bool Found = false;
                  Process[] ps = Process.GetProcesses();                  
                  foreach(Process p in ps)                  
                        if(p.MainWindowTitle.StartsWith(s))
                        {
                              Found = true;
                              break;
                        }
                        else
                              Found =false;
                  
                  return Found ;
            }

            private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
            if(AppIsRunning("SQL Server Enterprise Manager"))
                        MessageBox.Show("SQL Server Enterprise Manager is running");
                  else
                        MessageBox.Show("SQL Server Enterprise Manager is not running");
            }
