  1. Thanks for the replies, guys. I guess my instinct was right. Yeah, I was thinking about just making a little script for shortcuts and/or mouse movements, and a macro recorder would be a great addition that I didn't think of. Well, I'll get started now. Thanks again!
  2. Several players, Actually. Let's say, various versions of Windows Media Player, the divx player, PowerDVD, etc. None of which are open source, nor do I have access to the source for any of them. That would be the problem. The purpose of the app would be to monitor CPU/Memory usage for comparison purposes. I guess thats why I'm looking for a generic solution. The QA automation software I talked about earlier seems to be able to do just that. And since there are many of those, I was curious what they all knew and I didn't.
  3. I have a question that maybe some of the QA guys out there can help me with. I'm trying to figure out how to control the GUI of an outside application. I'd like for MY application to be able to launch a movie player, have it open a file, run for a time, and then close. The player doesn't have an API for plug-ins or even command line parameters, so my only thought was to use the windows SendInput() function to execute keyboard shortcuts, but that seems kind of hacked to me (If it would even work). I know a lot of QA automation software can "drive" other applications, but I'm not sure how that works. Does anyone have any information that could help? Thanks.
