    hwnd problem under XP

    Hi guys

    There is some time I'm having this problem:
    when I write hwnd SIce says "can't find desktop window".

    Any clues why this happens??

    I've even installed a new XP on a different partition and right after SIce but still ->no desktop window.
    I was thinking if this isn't a protection of some kind->bad serial or whatever.

    Peace

    Under XP you need to give HWND more info: look it up in the manual (See, I did not say read the forking manual!!!)

    HWND desktop | module | thread | class-name

    Usually if you find out the module you want to check with TASK, HWND 'your_module' gives you the results you are looking for.

    for more info RTFM page 124

    As Above

    Sadly, in Windows NT and kin, you MUST be in the correct address for the break to occur.

    Type in ADDR and name of your app (as seen through PROC command)

    Example:

    ADDR Notepad

    (I know the name of the process is Notepad because I did my PROC command before the ADDR command)

    THEN:

    Apply hwnd command.

    naides I though that reading the forking manual onces is enough(a few years back). It looks not.
    Anyway thanks.

    Aimless yeah it looks that I'm at the begining again. The commands that I used under w98 doesn't work as they used anymore. Interesting was that HWND on it's own worked sometimes and it didn't rest of the times.
    It looks I just got lucky to break in good proc space.

    And that is why I was so clueless->it works and than it just stops.

    So now I know I have to read the forking manual again.

    Thanks guys you are a blast.
