How can I convert a 'HANDLE' (retrieved from CreateProcess) to a 'HWND' or a 'CWnd *' ?

My application has launched an other application (Netmeting) with 'CreateProcess' and I want to minimize or not this application.

Can someone help me ?

Here is the answer. If you call CreateProcess, then you have a process handle, a thread handle, process id and a thread id(dwThreadId) in the PROCESS_INFORMATION structure. Then you call:

.
HWND hWnd = NULL;
EnumWindows((WNDENUMPROC)EnumWindowsProc, (LPARAM)&hWnd);
if (hWnd)
{
  // The window has been found.
}
.

BOOL CALLBACK EnumWindowsProc(HWND hwnd, LPARAM lParam)
{
  if (dwThreadId == GetWindowThreadProcessId(hwnd, NULL))
  {
    *(HWND*)lParam = hwnd;
    return FALSE; // Do not continue the search.
  }
  return TRUE; // Next window.
}
