I'm writing a program using VBA, inside a Powerpoint 2003 file, and need to verify if a task (whose name is known to my program) is runnig or not. I didn't find any way to obtain this info. Does someone know how to proceed? an example would be welcome!

It works, but I cannot think VBA hasn't commands to verify if a process is running or not!
