Erm, I'm not so sure. I do remember looking into this and coming to the 
conclusion that it wasn't possible to do it. A simple example I tried was 
to get AutoIT to spawn notepad, activate the notepad window and close it 
with Alt-F4. My conclusion was that AutoIT stopped at the instruction to 
activate the window.

In other tests I tried to enumerate the windows visible to AutoIT and log 
the title of each to a file. There were none, even after spawning notepad.

(Now, these tests might have happened when I was running WPKG as SYSTEM 
and not as a separate user, so there might be a significant difference.)

Would be very interesting to hear anyone else's experiences along these 

> It's obviously very hard to debug though.
