Hi all,

I have a script starts a particular application (.exe file). My problem is that when I try to run this script remotely, it will start the application but the application is never "active". Hence, because I use WinWaitActive, my script is basically broken because the window I'm expecting is never actually active.

My question: is there a way to make a particular window active if you already know what its title is? I was thinking of something like alt-tab, but this would get complicated if there were lots of other windows running at the same time.

Any tips are appreciated.
