If you plan to deploy a component or application for demo purposes, you may want to have it run only if the Delphi IDE is loaded.
The following piece of code checks this:

  if  (FindWindow('TApplication', nil) = 0) or
      (FindWindow('TAlignPalette', nil) = 0) or
      (FindWindow('TPropertyInspector', nil) = 0) or
      (FindWindow('TAppBuilder', nil) = 0) then
    ShowMessage('Delphi is not running!');
