Installation checks to see if FileZilla is open

Description

Trying to install a new version of FileZilla over an old one, it just gives this nasty Abort/Retry/Ignore prompt, if you have FileZilla open, saying that it can't overwrite the exe. It should check first and give you a friendly, "You may have FileZilla open, please close and click okay to continue."

I installed 3.0.1 over 3.0.0 without closing 3.0.0 (oops), and it said I had to reboot to finish uninstalling 3.0.0.

I haven't rebooted yet, and 3.0.1 works fine, but still.

On the subject of reinstallation, I like the way FileZilla checks for the latest version when I start it. I like the way it automatically uninstalls then downloads and installs the new version. But it'd be sweet if it would then run that new version. After all, that's what I wanted originally - to run the app.

I'm using 3.0.4.1.

Cheers
