define the position of the window of an extern application


is it possible to change the position of the app-window from an external-application which is running independent to max…

i need this app because i have to grab some images of it with jit.desktop. so if i want to make an standalonepatch with an autostartfeature, i have to autostart the independent-app first then the maxpatch is beeing autostartet and should move this app on an specific position to fit with the settings of jit.desktop…
the maxwindow itself should also beeing moved to an specific position because of preventing overlaps with the other app…
some solutions or objects?
hope you understand my questions…

Fragen verstanden…

The solution depends upon the platform you’re using: Windows? Mac OS?
OS X or earlier?

so i found this BASIC-like scripting language SDK and i think it will do it for me to run, position and size my-independent app and after a few seconds the max patch…

but i would also be interested in a solution which is working directly from the maxpatch… are there any externals for max now to do this stuff ?
