Just tested this under 1.1, and it does compile. The version of 1.1 I have 
seems to have issues with linking it, and I don't have time to go through them. 
It came back with a complaint that there was a missing entry point in User32, I 
believe the routine was 'enumtaskwindow(s?)'. I guess this is fixed by now.

Incidentally, the linker had to be pursuaded into linking. It complained 
about 'libpwindows.aw' being missing. I guess the error about missing entry 
points is related to this.

Anyway, I'm guessing that if the app ran, you might get some sort of luck.. who 
knows. Works perfectly under Delphi, anyway ;-)
