Allow only one instance of console application to run

How to allow only one instance of console application to run on one single
machine?

Thanks!

Well, you could create your own class inherited from the Console class and
add a static field that would keep track of how many instances of your class
there are. You can then check this field in your code to only open a new
console session if there are no other sessions open. This is just a thought
and there might be another more efficient way to do it...anyone?!
