Showing a process from within a diff app.

I have used delphi and the Win API call CreateProcess to run another program when the user presses a button.  If the user presses the same button and the app is still running, I want it to be brought to the foreground.  How do I do this using the Process-Information data returned from the CreateProcess call (ie: without doing an EnumWindow or other such function)?

Is this app you are starting a Win-app developed with Delphi?
If so, get a copy of the freeware JustOne component and drop this on the form of this app and recompile it. Then this all will be done for you...
The source of this freeware component is also available. So, if this first option is no option for you, check this source for further hints to solve your problem.

Unfortunately, the programs I am running are not my own, so I cannot add the JustOne component to them.  Also, the method JustOne uses to find the previous instance is to do an EnumWindows function and look through all of the windows.  I was looking for a way to bring up the application as I already have a handle to it's process (and a process ID and a thread handle and a thread ID).  There has to be a way to get the handle to the main window from one of these handles/IDs???
