GetWindow()

I would like to be able to get hold of the Window's handles of programs which are currently running. (eg MS Spy++ does this)

How do I do this?

I know its something to do with the GetWindow function but Ive been able to get hold of the HWNDLAST window which is rather frustrating.
Thanks in advance

Use h=GetWindow( NULL, GW_HWNDFIRST ) to find first and GetNextWindow( h, GW_HWNDNEXT ) to find next window(s).

Prehaps Im missing something, here but all Im getting is a Null
see bellow. Also if pos I would like to use the CWnd approach
.
HWND h;
h=::GetWindow(NULL,GW_HWNDFIRST);
for(int count=0; count<10; count++)
{
h=::GetWindow(h,GW_HWNDNEXT);
if (h==NULL) TRACE("failed\n");
    //pWnd.GetWindowText(my1);
   //TRACE("m=%s*\n",my1);
TRACE("window=%d*\n"5,h);
}

OK. Here is code. It gave all windows which Spy++ did:

#include <windows.h>
int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE,HINSTANCE,LPSTR,int)
{
 HWND h;
 h = GetDesktopWindow();
 h = GetWindow( h, GW_CHILD );
 while( h )
 {
 // do what you want
  h = GetWindow( h, GW_HWNDNEXT );
 }
 return TRUE;
}
