#include<WinApi.au3>
$MG=GUICreate('Main',1024,768,-1,-1)
GUISetState()
$CG=GUICreate('Child',200,400,100,100)
GUISetState()
_WinAPI_SetParent($CG,$MG)

combining the $WS_CHILD with the $WS_CAPTION seemed to do the work :D

The child window has to be set as a child window, this can be done out the GUICreate function as well by looking at GUISetStyle. If you read about it on the MSDN page if you look in the help file under _WINAPI_SetParent

i tried it with child windows too.... same problem the parent window can't get focus unless it has no child windows or if all child windows are minimized

Your first example didn't work for me on XP either...

;#include<WinApi.au3>
$MG=GUICreate('Main',1024,768,-1,-1)
GUISetState()
$CG=GUICreate('Child',200,400,100,100,Default,Default,$MG)
GUISetState()
;_WinAPI_SetParent($CG,$MG)
While GUIGetMsg()<>-3
WEnd

your example does not make the child go inside the parent window.....
