Hi @Saniya_Javed & @StaceyTyler,

At least on Windows, an application cannot be running while it is updated. This is because files would be locked and in use by the application's process. You would need to first detect that your application is running then stop the application's process. You would first need to programmatically do that from a Windows command prompt. After you get that working from a command prompt, you could try using an Execute Script/Batch file Action to incorporate the functionality in your installer.
