Does the dialog have a constant title?  If so you could use FindWindow() to locate it?  (hopefully the title is sufficiently unique that it doesn't find anything else....)

the problem is that this dialog is modal dialog and therefore the message loop is waiting until this dialog is closed.

I see.  I wasn't familiar with that funcion.  I thought that was the name of some OTHER application, and you wanted to do something to its window.

I don't see any clean way to do this. An ugly way is to have a 2nd thread find the window and change it.
