I'm calling (from my own program) an application with "ShellExecute". When it's loaded I want to change the position of the application with "SetWindowPos". This doesn't work. Who can help me ?

Hi:

First use FindWindow() to get handle of loaded app,
then  SetWindowPos(), Did you use the handle from FindWindow()
It shoudl work.

To use FindWindow(), you need to know the name or the class name
of the app, which can be found by using WinSight

good luck
