I have a program that I have written in MFC++ and I want to add some aditional features.
I want to be able to take actions on another program (that I did not write) based on calculations in my program.
I do not know (at all) how to access the other running app. I can get the Process ID from the windows task manager, but I don't know what to do with that information once I have it. Also, there is text in the other application that I would like to be able to read. This text provides information for the calculations in my app.
Can anyone point me to the starting place. Are there any MFCs that deal with this? How do I attach to the other application and interact with it? Again, I'm just looking for where to begin, I can figure it out if I can get a starting place.
Thanks in advance.
