    errrrr........

    MSDN
    "The FindWindow function retrieves a handle to the top-level window whose class name and window name match the specified strings. This function does not search child windows . This function does not perform a case-sensitive search
    To search child windows, beginning with a specified child window, use the FindWindowEx function. "

    Set the first param to null and the second to the title you are looking for.

    Any dialog or control within or on a window should be a child of that window.
