I have developed an application that detects if it is already running using Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName(Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess.ProcessName) method.

But I have a customer with it installed on a Server 2003 that also hosts Remote Desktop connections. When these connections try to run the program they are told it is already running though naturally they have no access to it.

Is there a way of detecting if a program is running within a session rather than somewhere on the host computer?

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
