I do not know of a way to do this that is built in. Well other than the fact that when removing the install will attempt to tell the user to close the program. But i believe the default is to allow them to bypass this and it is not 100% certain to catch.

You could always write a custom action to check for the existance of a process. WMI should be able to give you all process names. Or a dll will work.
