if youre trying to find that window why not just use FindWindow(NULL, "window title") thats a lot less code.

FindWindow requires you to have the full titlebar text, now Pandora titlebar isn't the same everytime you run it, so you have to do it this way.

OT, but I really feel the cleanest way to solve the problem is irieb's approach using Javascript to grab the titlebar text, and a local webserver. Then all you need to run is an Apache server (which a number of you probably already are) that supports PHP or Perl, and make a script that does what his java class is currently doing.

Back on topic, this program will repeatedly search for the requested window, find it and return the title text. Wouldn't it be better to have your main program read the output of this program which would be running in its own, separate thread? This program could then locate the window once, and after a preset interval check to see if the title has changed, and only return the title text when it has in fact changed?

Should be a little more efficient, and probably not add a lot of extra code to either program.
