Check if app running

Within InstallShield 11 how do you check to see if an app is running and if it is close it? Example: Is calc.exe running? If yes kill process calc.exe

Thanks.

You can always use Win APIs. Either a C++ dll Custom Action(CA) or Installscript CA that uses Kernel32.dll can be employed.

The ISGetObj + InstallScript approach described at http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showpost.php?p=458134&postcount=7 is working for me also in IS 2011. That script should be a good starting point.
