If the mouse is in the correct position above the Explorer Window, or you don't care about position, I have used the following code sucessfully.  SendMessage never worked for me either.

    Mouse_Event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    Mouse_Event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTUP, 0, 0, 0, 0);

(It worked in a program I wrote to automatically beat the Minesweeper game)

I would follow dlengel's suggestion. This method works well.

You may find setting the cursor position function useful too

setcursorpos(x,y)
