python win32all: Why Differences with C?

I'm hacking with a Palm using pilot-xfer on Win98 (it's the only library I can
find that's compiled for win32). I have an example program (kittykiller.c, if
you know it) compiled from C which calls:
// obtain the handle for the HotSync manager's window
HWND hWnd = FindWindow(HOTSYNC_APP_CLASS,NULL);
And the program works fine. It's small, and I would like to avoid the overhead
of calling it via spawnv (any efforts to portably merge spawnv(os.P_WAIT...)
into os.system?... but I digress), so I try to translate it to win32all build
After some stumbling around in the Python Win32 help files, I discover
win32ui.FindWindow() which seems to have similar looking parameters, so I
translate the above as:
wnd =win32ui.FindWindow (HOTSYNC_APP_CLASS, None)
But this gives me an exception:
win32ui: The window was created in a different thread and can not be mapped.
Same thing for FindwindowEx() with a pair of Nones added in. I understand
Unix, tcl, python, and such things. I know nada about Windows. I have little
idea of what the program above doing. Anyone have any suggestions about what
I'm doing wrong and how to fix it? The only other thing I want to do in this
translation is call wnd.SendMessage().
Thanks for any ideas.
