Clicking one application's buttons from another application
I'd like to write an application that can click the
buttons of another application running on the same
machine. All my application knows about the target
application is its name, the name of the window containing
the buttons, and the name of the buttons. Can someone
further my education in this matter in some way.
This is tricky, but possible. I actually do it in a little utility I wrote to move Outlook
filters down, since the "Move Down" button doesn't autorepeat and when you have 850
anti-spam filters it becomes a bit unwieldy.

more than what Visio design page as well as print preview are showing).

I've lost the ability to find a contact when I make a new email. If it is a
contact that I've used fairly recently, then it isn't a problem but there
are some contacts that I can't send email to. For example, there is an entry
in my contacts for Dave Smith but if I put that name into the to box,
Outlook will complain that it can't find the contact. When the search box
comes up, it says that it can't find any contact at all.

You need to implement DllMain, the handle your cleanup tasks when you
