If I'm remembering correctly, this is what these flags mean:

Single Launch - One copy of the app can be running per executable file
Exclusive Launch - No more than one copy of the application should run
at any given time
Args Only - Indicates the app does not respond to messages

The main difference between single and exclusive is if you take an
application, make a copy of it with a different name, and run both at
the same time, Single Launch will let both copies run, whereas
Exclusive Launch will prevent the second from running.
