I clicked to option LaunchCommander to go to my Outlook email if it is already running.  However, when I click on this button from the commander it launches another instance of Outlook.

Am I using this incorrectly, or is this a bug?  I am running XP and LC version 1.83.01

Thanks

there may be another commandline option to tell outlook to bring up previous copy.

HOWEVER, having said that what i think i will do is add an option to LBC to smartly reactivate a running copy of a program if its already running -- i think it would be useful in general for some applications.
