You could programmatically take a screen shot of the running application and save it as an image file.

See: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/thiagu304/SnapIt01192007084645AM/SnapIt.aspx for examples of how to save a screenshot from within your .NET code.

You are basically going to be looking at the System.Drawing.Imaging namespace, the Bitmap class, and the CopyFromScreen method.
