    Question Access (click) buttons in other apps' widnows? (MinGW g++)

    I would like to make a simple application that clicks some buttons in other (already open) applications' windows. I also would like to avoid VC and use MinGW g++ instead. Is it possible? If so could someone point me to the references/tutorials/examples? Thanks!

    Sounds like this isn't anything related to VC or MinGW. FindWindow/EnumWindows and Post/SendWindow should do the trick.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
