I have used this in previous projects, it works very well in a multi-platform product as well..

Anyone know how to prevent multiple instances of an exe to be started?  So, I start bob.exe.  I then I try to double click and start bob.exe again while the first is still running and a second instance does not start (or at least shuts itself down or does anything other than start another instance).

Is there a Qt/C++ on Windows way to do that?
