Abort / Retry for Active File

I just want the user to be prompted that the file they are trying to install is already active (opened). I don't know that a FindWindow will work correctly because the window titles change with each version and class remains the same.

How can I just prompt the user to retry / abort the install?

If the name of the file will be static, you could try doing:

Section -
CopyFiles /SILENT "$INSTDIR\myfiletocheck.ext" "$PLUGINSDIR"
Delete "$INSTDIR\myfiletocheck.ext"
IfErrors 0 next
#prompt user to take action
