Focus Helper and SD Contest Logger

I would like to use the Focus Helper feature of SmartSDR with my preferred contest logging program SD (ei5di.com).

I have been working with the developer, but no luck so far.

SD is written in PowerBasic in the console mode so there is some question what the name property is for the SD.exe window.  The title bar just says SD.  We've tried many different variations in the SmartSDR Focus Helper configuration - SD, SD.EXE, C:\SD\SD.EXE and so on.  No luck.

Suggestions appreciated.

It's in the Radio Setup screen of SmartSDR under the Radio tab.  It helps to return focus to your logging program or other application after you use the mouse to interact with SmartSDR.

Al -

 I don't have Autohotkey.

I am suspecting that the Windows name property may be optional for programmers and, thus, there is nothing to find.
