In windows use tasklist , and in linux us ps . In either case, you'll need to search/grep out your process's name to see if it's running

import os

run this script and Get jlm699's flavour

Yes, both tasklist and ps are command line executables in their respective OS. They print out a list of all the running processes. It will still be up to you to read the return and search for your program unless you know how to use grep. Although I'm not sure if windows has a grep-like feature. I'd assume no
