Ever want to prevent an application from launching while streaming?
If yes, then here’s a simple application I wrote to prevent Firefox from launching while I have OBS running.

StreamGuard is simple stand-alone executable which take two parameters.

The first parameter is the name (or path) to an executable which only if not found in the list of running processes launches the second specified file (passing any additional arguments).

For example here’s the settings to only launch Firefox if OBS is not running:

StreamGuard.exe obs64.exe "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Simply create a shortcut to the StreamGuard.exe and supply the additional arguments. As a bonus you can change the name and icon of the shortcut to match the file to launch.
