    test for running application

    Hello:
    I finally got my truckputer installed and testing has begun. I call it Beta v1.
    It is a Dell Latitude running Windows xp professional. So far, I have a few quirks, but thats part of the fun.
    Anyway, my OBDII application likes to start new copies of itself, so when I call it from RR, it starts a new instance. Does anyone know how to test for a running application before it starts?
    Thanks,
    DNR

    A good app will check for already running instances of itself.

    I take it yours doesn't.


    Actually I think if RR starts it, RR will first try to embed any versions of the app already running before actually starting a new one. Just make sure you have the window name correct



    <note to self, make sure I add that to my current project before I release it>
