WPF Single Instance Application – Update

April 4, 2011

no comments

Back in this post I’ve presented some code that make sure you only have one instance of your application.

As I’ve said before, I didn’t wrote this code, I just presented it since I came across it in a Microsoft reference application and didn’t want this gem to remain hidden.

Microsoft recently released a Windows 7 Recipe named “Windows 7 Taskbar Single Instance”, which despite its taskbar-related name is simply a revised implementation of the single instance feature in both .NET and C++. There are well documented samples for both cases. The credit for this recipe goes to Eran Stiller and Yochay Kiriaty.

I advise anyone who needs this feature to work with the new recipe.

That’s it for now,
Arik Poznanski.
