    How to avoid starting a second (or third) instance of your application

    thisismadness

      Is it possible to check if an application is running already? If I now start my app for a second time (Win7), all the screen items are drawn a second time on the screen; not what I want. So before initializing my GUI, I want to do a check to see if the application is running (has started but not closed).

       

      I also posted this question on actionscript.org a while ago, but I didn't get any answers there. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
