 The code I have in place will close the visio application if it is open and start a new application but now my problem is if the user is currently trying to make a change to the file, then my program will crash.  
I get this message:
This file is open for modifications in another instance of Visio.
How can I get around this??
Could I somehow display a message box and ask the user to close the application?
