Hi EE,

I have the following batch script:

start "" "C:\eBroadcaster\EBroadcaster1.exe" -S"ASDFSQL";-D"MAILman_PROD";START

Open in new window

How do I get the batch to search for another instance 'EBroadcaster1.exe' and to terminate if finds one currently running, to prevent the program from running two instances of itself?

Any help is welcome.

Thank you.
