So there are no generic solutions? I thought if Office was installing or some other tool was installing, then other installers would be able to check that and stop their install. If I understand that article correctly, that would work for certain parts of an MSI install, right? So if they ran my bootstrapper, then ran it again, they would both run without a problem.
I would have thought there would be something in Windows itself that all installers could use.

The person asking the question wanted it in powershell but it should be easy to port it back to c#.

Something I have been meaning to do it make my installer show a message and stop running if another installer is already running. Is that something one can do? I use a custom bootstrapper (C# .NET bootstrapper application).
