      Description

      The Windows installer is supposed to show a warning if Picard is already running, but this does not work in Picard 2.x releases.

      The code trying to detect a running instance is at https://github.com/metabrainz/picard/blob/master/installer/picard-setup.nsi.in#L192

      The NSIS docs have some recommendations for implementation:
