Yes, that is a good article. I just wanted to know how many copies have already been started so the code could avoid putting all the opwninf dialogs on top of each other. I will elect to not add that complexity and let the user deal with it. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
If you want to be able to count instance hits, have a look at the shared memory option here.[^]
This article also shows some other techniques which I think fix some of the problems described in Joe Newcomer's article first referenced above. I have used the shared memory technique to inhibit multiple instances of a program as well as manage some common data in a program where I allow multiple instances.
[I have a lot of respect for the technical output of both of these authors.]
