Default How do you protect against running several instances of the same program?

Hi people,

I have a software protected by HASP SRM dongle, and this software is able to detect multiple instances of itself. If you try to run a second instance, it will give an error: "There is already an instance of the program running!!"

My question is: does HASP protection offer this feature?

Or do you have to protect your program by yourself without any help from the dongle??

EDIT: Yep, it seems that HASP includes this feature!

Now I have to find out if the software is really making use of that option or not...

Thanks a million,
Kind regards.
