Hello. I've been trying to select an item on an external listview but it seems to only work with listviews that accept multiple selected items:
HANDLE process=OpenProcess(PROCESS_VM_OPERATION|PROCESS_VM_READ|PROCESS_VM_WRITE|PROCESS_QUERY_INFORMATION, FALSE, 0xC30); 
 
LVITEM lvi;
 
LVITEM* _lvi=(LVITEM*)VirtualAllocEx(process, NULL, sizeof(LVITEM), MEM_COMMIT, PAGE_READWRITE); 
 
 lvi.state = LVIS_FOCUSED | LVIS_SELECTED;
 lvi.stateMask = LVIS_FOCUSED | LVIS_SELECTED;
 lvi.mask = LVIF_STATE;
 
 WriteProcessMemory(process, _lvi, &lvi, sizeof(LVITEM), NULL); 
 int abc = ::SendMessage((HWND)0x00080D6A, LVM_SETITEMSTATE, (WPARAM)0, (LPARAM)_lvi); 
 VirtualFreeEx(process, _lvi, 0, MEM_RELEASE);

Will this way with SendMessage work, if the listview will be in the current process?
There were always few steps - give focus to the listview, select the item, check that this item is visible. seems like you didn't switch the focus? or just didn't redraw the list?

In a common case it can be like that:
ListView_SetItemState(hList, -1, 0, LVIS_SELECTED);
SendMessage(hList,LVM_ENSUREVISIBLE,  (WPARAM)item, FALSE);
ListView_SetItemState(hList,item, LVIS_SELECTED ,LVIS_SELECTED);
ListView_SetItemState(hList,item, LVIS_FOCUSED ,LVIS_FOCUSED);
