It doesn't seem to work. Syntax of the call:

$gamwind = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]", "")

$newdata = _TextractCapture($gamwind, "", "", "", 1, 1, 1)

I get the following error message:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\Textract.au3 (111) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$TextractOCX.ReadWindow(Number($hwnd))

$TextractOCX.ReadWindow(Number($hwnd))^ ERROR

Any thoughts?
