    Default Program to stop a program starting of another one is running

    Hey all,

    I have a problem - it's me

    I continually start VMware WS and VirtualPC simultaneously - resuting in a crash on VMware.

    I there some kind of program that will warn me when I start one and the other is started (or just block it from running)?

    Thanks

    Don't know of one off hand but this would be incredibly simple to script provided the executable names for both / all applications involved were known.

    If it were me, I'd just ditch the VirtualPC, VMWare is leaps and bounds better than VirtualPC
