Is there a way to ensure that the application EXE that will be patched (or its component files will be patched) is not running before the patch process begins?

Yes, such check can be implemented though there must be support from the application program.

The application program must create a mutex object ( Win32 API CreateMutex() function) with a unique name upon program execution and this name should be written in the "AppMutex" field of patch parameters ("Inno Setup Settings" group). Please have a look at the "AppMutex" directive description in the InnoSetup user manual. InnoSetup user manual location: "<PatchFactory3 Installation Folder>\Inno\ISetup.hlp".

And besides there is an option which helps define the way the patching engine behaves when trying to update occupied files on the end-user's machine. Default settings provide the following scenario: if some of files to be patched are occupied during the update process then no messages are popped up, however upon update completion the user will be prompted to restart the system and those files which were occupied will be updated after system restart.
Please have a look at the following options description (PatchFactory user manual) for details:
- "Allow patch on reboot"
- "Backup"
- "Backup for deleted"
- "Allow delete on reboot"
