"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm unfamiliar with lotusscripts, but it seems to have some tiring/reference to Visual Basic,
Potentially you could list processes and the make your determination,
Where are you running the check for a running process versus where the process is?

Thanks for getting me thinking in the right way.

The following code will loop through all processes that are currently running.

	Dim objWMIService As Variant, colProcessList As Variant

	Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & "." & "\root\cimv2") 
	Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process" ) 
	ForAll objProcess In colProcessList
		Print objProcess.Name
		If (objProcess.Name = "nlnotes.exe") Then
			'MsgBox "Process: " & objProcess.Name
			'MsgBox "Process ID: " & objProcess.ProcessID 
			'MsgBox "Thread Count: " & objProcess.ThreadCount 
			'MsgBox "Page File Size: " & objProcess.PageFileUsage 
			'MsgBox "Page Faults: " & objProcess.PageFaults 
			'MsgBox "Working Set Size: " & objProcess.WorkingSetSize 
		End If
	End ForAll
