in reply to How to continue running script if .exe program fails
However, you might find it useful to get AutoIt for its AutoIt Window Info Tool, which can be used to get information about the windows that you are trying to automate.
I use http://www.catch22.net/software/winspy-17 to find the info I need (normally the Window Class, and the Window's title).
(Or you might already have the Spy++ utility that ships with Microsoft Visual Studio.)
Then you call Win32::GuiTest's FindWindowLike() to get a handle to the window. Then you can manipulate the window.
