I am writing a program for Pocket PC 2002 using VB.Net 2003
I want to use the SHSetAppKeyWndAssoc so I need to the windows handle.  However, the Me.hwn is private member so I use the GetActiveWindow.  But the GetActiveWindow Function return error.  Is there any other way I can get the windows Handle?

In effect, it says GetActiveWindow() returns NULL if some window not owned by the calling thread has focus.  

Workaround: Use GetForegroundWindow() instead
