in reply to How to interact with window which is minimized or not in foreground(Active)?

You want to interact with a window sitting inactive in the background without activating it proper and bringing it into the foreground.

Just out of curiosity: Why? Why is bringing it into the foreground not a good idea?

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    I suspect becuse they've found out that they can't use Win32::GuiTest to send keystrokes to a window when the screen is locked, and they're trying to work around the problem by leaving the session unlocked but minimising the window, which also won't work.
