Say, we have the following scenario:
- a user has installed my software using BitRock installer already
- a user downloads a new version (doesn't matter manually or using auto update tool)
- a user runs installation process but previous version of my software is still running in backgournd.
I would like to do the following: I would like to send some message to my application to ask it to quit. Then the installer should wait until my application is finished and run installation. Than it should restart software if it was terminated on previous step.
I found how to notify a user if my process is running but I haven't found any way to to communicate with external proccess. I would like to have cross-platform solution but it is ok if you suggest something for Windows only.
