Run If Exists – launching applications

Our tool Run If Exists is back! After almost 6 years we have revised our tool offer exactly the identical function as last in 2016. Launching applications as soon as a defined file exists. Define several different configurations and start them in parallel so you can run multiple applications at once.

    Installation and configuration

    The installation of Run If Exists is very simple. Download the executable file and define the program or script you want to run and the startup file that will make the defined program run. Activate the startup using the Activate button. For testing, you can have an empty start file created (via the Create Startfile button) or create a shortcut directly on your desktop.

    Use the menu to access our website or check directly if an update is available.

    Please make sure that a possibly existing file is overwritten when creating the start file (button “Create Startfile”). Therefore, check the correct spelling of your start file beforehand.

    If you have a new requirement that you would like us to add to Run If Exists, please do not hesitate to let us know. We will be very happy to extend the features so that the tool can be of even greater help to you.


    As soon as we have released a new version, we will list the changes that have been made to it in more detail here.

    We are also very happy to receive your suggestions about the Run If Exists tool. We are looking forward to any feedback. Please use our contact form or the support area.
