Could be me but what is the purpose of this section:

Local $regKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\TRONG_UDF\" & $exeScriptName, $regValue = "Last_PID"
    RegWrite($regKey, $regValue, "REG_SZ", @AutoItPID)
    Sleep(100)
    Local $Last_PID = RegRead($regKey, $regValue)
    If @AutoItPID <> $Last_PID Then Exit

The If is never true and why Read a Reg value you just wrote yourself?
Isn't this the exact same thing:?

Local $regKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\TRONG_UDF\" & $exeScriptName, $regValue = "Last_PID"
    RegWrite($regKey, $regValue, "REG_SZ", @AutoItPID)

 

I also don't understand why you have this test as that should always be true..no?:

If ProcessExists($exeScriptName) Then

The steps for this function are:
1. Write the current program's PID to the Registry.
2. Pause the program, so that other programs can start more slowly overwrite the value.
3. Check the initial PID value, if it is different, exit because another program starts later.
4. Check once again if there exist applications with the same name running.
5. Delete the temporary reg key just written above.

If the application runs normally then the chance of an error is 0%!
