You can do it by mutex or by enumerating the running processes. The first method relies upon you knowing the correct path to the application, the second depends upon you knowing the assembly name. Neither method are fool proof. Code relating to these two methods can be found in mediaportal.cs, search for m_Mutex.

The app I wrote that launches MP in response to the green button on the MCE remote handles it by enumerating the top level windows, again not fool proof.

I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.

@Andy_2639 : I regret to say that I don't think that this problem will be fixed. :( As the years pass, the number of active members of the MP team steadily decreases, and as far as I know, there is no one in the current team who knows much about either SQL or TV Server. The problem will remain unfixed until someone who knows SQL...
