Adding a menu in to a Windows program an using it

I wonder if there is a conflict between the DLL (no doubt written for x86) and your x64 system? :)

I am afraid that I am not expert enough in such things to affirm that this might be the root of the problem, but it sounds a reasonable possibility. ;)

Hmm, I think you may be right :)

I believe it is more autoit than it is the .dll, though.

"Run Script (x86)" and compiling the script for x86 gave me the same results:

Button 1 created a GUI that froze my autoit,

but buttons 2 and 3 created a successful messagebox!

Very interesting... maybe I will try using this on on a virtual XP system.

Edit: This hooks very well to most programs I tried, but not Ventrilo (chat program). I believe the problem is that the main window itself has no control, as opposed to calc's CalcFrame. Ive tried using the window name/window class (which it may share with other windows? #32770 showed up in calc as well. ) and it doesn't work. Is there a way to hook this without a control?
