There are better places to find me then on comp.lang.python (just too
much traffic for me)

My guess is that problem above is that teh title of the window is
u"Print - \\Remote", and "Print"  is not enough information for
pywinauto to go on.

I suggest you replace the last line with one of the following...
    app.window_(title_re = "Print - .*").Ok.CloseClick()

Someone also was wondering why they do not have to call
Application.Start() or Application.Connect() explicitly - that is
because the first call to app.window_() will initialize the application
appropriately.  The reason for this is that most usages ended up being
a) Connect to a window with specific title, then use that window in the
next line - so I was trying to avoid duplication.
