Allow only one instance of a program to run.

- User defined programs.
- Option to detect hidden programs.
- Won't close instances started before SingleInstance.

Thanks to wr975 at DonationCoder Forum for the idea!

4 Comments on "SingleInstance"

  1. Singleinstance does not seem to work. I tested it with multiple different programs, for example like Calculator.exe (the windows app) and various other programs on my pc. All of those programs that supported running multiple instances had no problems doing so.

    I had made sure to add the exact full filenames, including the file type extension, into the settings list (listing them each on it’s own line).


  2. I made a comment here about the program not working since multiple instances are launched. I input the wrong email address, the correct email is in this message.


  3. Hi,sorry for spamming you. It seems that it works now for most programs, not sure why it didn’t work previously. Though it still doesn’t work for windows apps like Calculator.exe, but for the programs I have to primarily use it for, it works. Thanks for making these nice pieces of software.


  4. I am having problems with singleinstance.exe on my win8 machine and would like to uninstall the program but cannot find the program in my “unistall program” window. What is the name of the program to uninstall it? I also indexed the programs by date and tried to find the program singleinstance, which i installed yesterday, but can not find it.
