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.

My Word 2007 keeps crashing. I can use very basic functions (eg 'save') but
not the majority of functions (eg 'save as' and almost all editing
functions). I can type text, but anything else sends Word into 'not
responding' mode, which basically renders the programme useless.
I have tried:
a) Running office diagnostics (no problem identified)
b) Re-installing Office 2007 (same problems persist)
Does anyone else have these problems? Any proven resolutions or ideas?
Thoughts would be much appreciated

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