    Script to check if app is running ...

    Any script kiddies out there that can point me in the right direction?

    I'm after a script I can push to teachers machines to check if a specific application, in this case outlook.exe, is running. If not i'd like it to start/run the app.

    Any suggestions ?

    AutoIT:

    Code:
    If ProcessExists("outlook.exe") Then
        MsgBox(0, "Example", "Notepad is running.")
    EndIf
