To get the handle, use 'FindWindow()' (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633499.aspx), to move it, use 'MoveWindow()' (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms633534.aspx), e.g.

HWND hwnd = FindWindow(NULL,"notepad.exe");

// check for error

MoveWindow(hwnd,100,200,300,300,TRUE);

No, both of them work on all compilers that can create programs for teh Windows platform. All you need is

#include <windows.h>
