What window handle are you talking about? RemoteExecute has nothing to do with window handles. You need a *process* handle to get RemoteExecute working.

How did the manual give you the idea that you need a window handle? :o

I mean the documentation about RemoteExecute doesn't even mention the word "window". And the first parameter is named "processHandle".

About which process are you talking? How does your code look like?

Code: Select all

windowhandle := findwindow(nil,'Title');
GetWindowThreadProcesId(windowhandle,@pid);
but of course this isn't a processhandle but a processid... so ive tried with openprocess but failed anyway!

OpenProcess fails? How does your OpenProcess code look like? What does GetLastError say? About which process are we talking? Is it a normal application or a service or a system process?

Yes, as long as you have enough privileges.
