Well.. Whatever you are using,

Say you are using WaitWin().

The paremeters are as followed..

WinWait ( "title" [, "text" [, timeout]] )

So, the title would be the title.

Then to decifer which one you want, also use the text paremeter,

This will check the text.

Hope i am correct, and hope it helps.

Other things like this also have this option, like WinWaitActive, WinGetState and so on.

jehuty,

If the 2 windows have different text within them, you can use the "text" parameter, e.g.: WinGetState ( "title", "text" ).

If not... How do you get the 2 windows in the first place?

jehuty,

Use the AutoIt Window Info tool to get more info on the pop-up window - like CLASS and INSTANCE. Then you can use these values to distinguish between the various pop-ups. Look in the Help file under AutoItSetOption - WinTitleMatchMode - Window Titles and Text (Advanced) for more details on how to do this.
