Only 'GetParent' is the one that cannot be imported in the example.
'ShowWindow' can be called, just doesn't take the expected effect
(because of the wrong hwnd).

Unfortunately I also get an Attribute error for 'CreateWindowFromHande'.

Actually when I search through win32* files for the string 'GetParent',
it matches in the file Pythonwin\win32ui.pyd (and win32com\win32com.hlp)
while 'CreateWindowFromHande' cannot be found at all and neither of them
can be imported.

(I've fetched the latest win32all.exe but it was the same I've already
