Is that API call available through VBscrpt?

If so, one could use cscript.exe from Rev to get the info.

Nope, sorry Richard, it can't be obtained correctly from the registry. I

know, I've tried. There's a specific API call for it. See:

Also, unfortunately, the RevIDE resets the windowBoundingRect on 
startup, so one is not able to get the true value within the IDE.

But, I've found it's pretty easy in a standalone to 'popup' windows 
above the taskbar by checking the windowBoundingRect on startup.
