Try this:

Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long

Declare Function IsIconic Lib "user32" Alias "IsIconic" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Declare Function CloseWindow Lib "user32" Alias "CloseWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long


H = FindWindow("", "")
Do While H<>0
if IsIconic(H) then CloseWindow(h)
loop
0
