Supposedly, this app will allow you to control this aspect of windows. I have
not tried it myself. http://www.softaward.com/732.html

Actually, it should have been written into the application itself (That is, to
detect, and dis-allow a second instance of itself to be launched!) Done
correctly, it would have opened the DDB in the already active session.

Subject: Re: [PEDA] stopping second instance of 99SE


is there any utility out there that will stop a second instance of
a program from running when you double click a data file with
a file associated which would start that program ?

sure would love that, seems like it would be feasible from the
small amount i know about this stuff

this desire is due to the all too frequent mishap of double
clicking a DDB instead of or during dragging it to the title bar

after 2 copies are running i have found it a MUST to quit
them both and restart 99SE, else something goes screwy with the
loaded libraries

i'm sure i posted this some time ago but thought i would try
again
