Thanks, Autoit would most probably be my tool of choice if nothing else arise from the above question. I was not sure, since it involves events (like connecting to the printer) that might be time-based and therefor unreliable, but it is worth trying out.

Hi SA, just did as you mentioned, and it worked like a charm. Many thanks !

With MSDN membership, you mean Microsoft account, correct ? I think it is one and the same.

Thanks. I get a bit confused with all the different versions, to be honest... and the Microsoft documentation does not really help.
What is the difference between Express and Community ? I tried the community version already, but it expired after 30 days, so it does not seem to be free of charge ( Microsoft wanted a code from me to continue using it) :

To my problem : I am writing a c++ plug-in for a third-party tool, so this dll only gets loaded at runtime. I need to start the tool, perform some operations, and only then my dll gets loaded. Attaching the process from within Visual Studio at that point of time does not succeed : the debugger starts, but my breakpoints are disabled. I managed to get my dll attached by the debugger by stopping the program flow with a message box, attaching the debugger using the Debug option from the windwos task manager on my process, which would just fire up visual studio in debugger mode (I think this goes over VSJitdebugger.exe, which is called by the task manager). But this is exactly what is not available in the express edition.

The cost of VS is outrageously enormous compared with the 30 lines .dll code I need to develop, but I think the choices are narrow...

Because using a free version for work purposes is against the law in my work country.
