I want to open up an existing instance if my program is already running only if its running the same version.I noticed that this question was asked for only if the name exists, but what if the version is older, I just want to notify the user that an older version is still running, "please remove older version before starting this version."The other link is this one:Return to an already open application when a user tries to open a new instance but they don't talk about closing an instance if an older or newer version is detected.
I have an application that can read certain types of files, and I have it working so that if you do "open with" from windows, it automatically starts the application and opens the selected file.
Unfortnately, I cannot get it to work for more than one file.
System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs() contrains the following: System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs(0) = name and path to the .exe System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs(1) = name and path to the first file selected to be opened
System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs().Length is 2 when the user tries to open 1 file, which makes sense since the first argument is the .exe itself and the 2nd is the path to the file, but it does not increase to 3 if the user tries to open 2 files... meaning that System.Environment.GetCommandLineArgs(2) is never populated Here is some sample code that shows the problem: It will recognize no files or 1 file being opened, but if you try to open multiple it will only show the first.

The problem is that if I save a file I get "myfile.GDL" if I overwrite that I get a new file "myfile.GDL.GDL" ect.the other problem being that the filtering in the windows save/open dialog wont show .GDL files unless I select "all files".
I have many container files on a hard drive, inside of them are many images. I have to get a particular image by using an ID to do this I have to go trough each of the container files and find the one which has the ID in it then I can retrieve the image.
I think I have 3 options:
load all the images at start up into memory, some images may or may not be used. as I need each image go through all the container files and open the image into memory. create a dictionary of IDs and what file they are in at start up and then get each image as I need it without have to go through all the container files.
i am new to visual basic and have recently made a quiz with 16 forms. I have built the project but when I attempt to email it (with hotmail) the person at the other end recieves it but then as he recieves it the following message is displayed "Cannot download the application. The application is missing required files. Contact application vendor for assistance."
I published an application and copied the Application Files Folder ,setup.exe and .application file to a network folder for others to install on their machines. What causes this message to appear. Should'nt the new version over write any previously installed version on a machine. Although in this case no other version has been installed. You cannot start application...from this location because it is installed from a different location
I am using Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition, and I have a large windows forms project I have been working on. My computer froze up and I had to reboot. After reboot I opened my project, all the files loaded although I got a message telling me that the document load was skipped because of the way the project opened the last time. I am able to debug and run the program so the app is ok. but when I double click on a form to open it nothing happens. Even if i right click it and select "View Designer" or "View Code" nothing happens. No errors just nothing. I was able to open other projects with no problem but not this one, and this project is the only one that matters.
There was an error about VB 2008 not being able to open vb files, i fixed that by re-installing but now when i try and make a project or open one i get this error:Warning1Extensibility DTE object unavailable.00
I have created a small application to open the Flash File from my VB.Net Windows Application. To open the Flash file - I have used the Shockwave Flash Object. When I run the application directly from the Solution, the flash files are opening perfectly. But, once I created the EXE and tried to open the same file, I could not. But I can still open other files such as XML, PDF, and Word file from the same directory.

In our application, when you go to "Menu > Help...", it opens our help files in Internet Explorer, which is the desirable effect. However, we have the shortcut key "F1" set to open the help files as well. It still opens the help in Internet Explorer... but it also opens them up at the same time in the user's default web browser![code]...

I'm working on a project, basically writing a small application intended to allow the user to open files from a specific directory, edit them without saving (through a RTE), then export the edited content to a word document using bookmarks.Part of this program I would truly like to add would be a list box displaying the name of files in a specific directory - and for the user to be able to click on each file name in the list box, and for the file contents to display within my RTE.
