My fault(already got that one running), i meant the 
win32gui.EnumChildWindows(currentHwnd, windowEnumerationHandler,

from what i understand the purpose of this function is to return the
childwindows from a top window - if this is right why not just pass a
topwindow as argument and return a list of childwindows?
