Standard way to accomplish it is to put an exclusive lock on some agreed
upon object (for example, on program object itself) in the beginning of
code.

Subject:  How to tell if a program is active?




I need to make sure that a particular program is running only once.  I do
not want multiple occurrences of this program to be running.  I'm sure my
mind is already on Thanksgiving time since I can't seem to figure out how I
can check whether a certain program is active or not.  Can anyone help me?
