 Run programs by

I created a vb script by which a program will be started. The code is as

Dim WshShell
Const vbNormalFocus = 3
DIM ProgLoc
ProgLoc = "D:\Prog\msoffice\Office\msaccess.exe /runtime /wrkgrp " & Chr(34)
& "g:\Acmos\Software\System.mdw " & Chr(34) & Chr(34) &
"G:\acmos\daten\pint32.mdb" & Chr(34)
Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

WshShell.Run ProgLoc, vbNormalFocus, true

This works fine.
But how can I avoid to start a 2nd session, if this program is already
loaded ?
I.e. I need a If .. then .. procedure, like If application is running then
activate application, else start it. Has anyone an idea ?
