How to check if Outlook is running

    Hello,
    I've found some conflicts between Outlook, SVG Plugin and some JRE. I
    would like to be able to detect if Outlook is currently running from IE
    so I could warn the user of possible crash.

    Is there a way to know if Outlook is currently running from IE?

    Thanks,

    Thomas.

    Hi Thomas,

    If your app crashes Outlook is probably running.
    ;-)

    Seriously, I don't think JavaScript can access such information.
    Maybe you can pull the trick via VBscript instead of JavaScript. VBscript
    has many (unsafe) features.
