    Detecting explorer.exe


    how can i detect if the heart of windows, explorer.exe, is running or not?
    im producing a shell for windows and wish to make sure it does not run if
    explorer.exe is running.
    thanks in advanced,

    Not quite understand what exactly isn't running for you, but the following sample will produce 4 instances of a Windows Explorer.

    Private Sub Form_Load()
    '=======================

    Shell "explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus
    Shell "explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus
    Shell "explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus
    Shell "explorer.exe", vbNormalFocus

    End Sub

    Me, I understood what you asked,

    I would go through the Tasks list and see each name if there is some explorer.exe
    running.

    I don't have in mind how you may get the tasks list but I've already found
    it easily on the Net.
