    HWND error message

    When I use Softice HWND command under WinNT, I got the following error :
    "Unable to find a desktop window"

    Does someone know why ?

    I experienced problems (window is not displayed) with using NULL handle under Win XP beta2 like there is no desktop window. Any suggestions?

    Well, even with "MessageBox(NULL, "test", "test", MB_OK)", I still got the same error message.

    Never mind, I'll use a window spy instead !

    Thx

    maybe you're in the idle context when you break into softice... try something like 'addr explorer' or 'addr <some_window_app>' (use 'proc' to get a list).

    regards,

    Try the 'proc' command first. When u get the list of processes name like 'Editplus' then try the following command :hwnd Editplus
