You can use registered messages !
Sample:
I use dll which hooks globally with WH_SHELL hook.
When new window created i'm throw message for my host app.
#define UWM_NEW_WINDOW_MSG _T("UWM_NEW_WINDOW_MSG-44E531B1_14D3_11d5_A025_006067718D04")
UWM_NEW_WINDOW=RegisterWindowMessage(UWM_NEW_WINDOW_MSG);
PostMessage(hWndHost,UWM_NEW_WINDOW,0,0);
You can define messages for all types of hooks. Then just post it to host app and you will know what hook intercepted.If you need a DEBUGHOOKINFO, the best way, i think, is to create shared memory object and pass structure elements or whole structure to your host app, then parse it, and write on disk for example. Because dll never don't need to be complex in this case (hooking).
Best regards
Stas
