  1. When we run our exe from any service or through any background process, it won't interact with the applications running in the foreground, I mean launched when the user is logged in or in GUI mode. Let's say, the onedrive sync app can't be detected from the exe we created and running it in background. I tried both options below. Any Idea how to interact with foreground processes using AuotIT code. Other than telling to launch the exe also in foreground.
  2. I want to check if the cmd.exe + window of it is running, if it is running I want to put the window to the foreground, but somehow this does not work: Local $sCommandlinePath = "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe" RunCm() Func RunCm() If FileExists($sCommandlinePath) Then If ProcessExists("cmd.exe") Then If WinExists("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]") And WinActive("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]") Then Local $hCmdWindow = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]") WinSetOnTop($hCmdWindow, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP) EndIf Else Local $iCmMax = Run($sCommandlinePath, "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) EndIf EndIf EndFuncI started the command line and put another window above it then I started my script and it did not put the command line window to the foreground.
  3. WindowDarken

    Subtitle pretty much says it. This program darkens the screen except for the active window with options accessible through a convenient tray icon. Other options are supported as well, including: active window-change fading controlcustom darkening color (instead of default black)background image choice (faded image over background windows. weird, but ok.)etc...Obligatory Screenshot: Download: WindowDarken.zip (source) Off-topic notes: I have no clue if there are other programs that do something similar, nor did I really check. I didn't really check the forum thoroughly either to see if something like this already existed, sorry. This was written initially for Windows XP, so I'm sorry if I wasted your time if something like this exists in your Windows Vista or 7. Tech summary: Forces the active Window as Topmost and a solid "darken" window on top of the normal windosw. Has complications concerning topmost state changes of both windows and other topmost windows. Doesn't seem to get along with some windows (namely GIMP's editor window). Some exclusions are coded in, but there may need to be an option added later to allow custom exclusions.
