Check to make sure that you have the correct title to the window you want to move. If that's only a partial title match you're doing, make sure that your AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", xx) is set correctly. The default is to match the whole title with what you put in there.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

You should make it a habit to check the return value or macros @error and @extended after a function call.

WinMove sets the return value to 0 if there was an error.

$iResult = WinMove("Open PM","",200,300)
If $iResult = 0 Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "WinMove was not successfull!")

$iResult is a variable that holds the return value of function WinMove. The "i" has nothing to do with Apple ... it's just a naming convention and stands for "Integer". So the variable will hold an integer value.
