    I would try to offer some help but I'd have to mess with it before making any suggestions

    I guess you're trying to control the window state (Restored/Minimized) when you load the screen to embed it ? If so, all I can think of is making commands to minimize/restore a window -- which we can do easily. Then you could open the screen and send the command to restore the window without having to "click" on it on the taskbar.

    Let me know if this is what you need or if I am understanding it incorrectly.

    No, I think what he is saying is that RR restores the window before applying all the window tweaks and embeding, instead of doing that all that in the background or when the window is hidden and that way when RR does show the window, it pops up ready to go in the correct location. I have seen this a few other places in a few of the dfx scripts and we have coded them to help deal with this issue so that it appears to be a much cleaner imbeding process.

    Some of the dirty tricks we have used to get the accomplished is:
    First create a dummy transpartent window with the win title of what we want RR to embed then show it and wait for RR to grab it and reposition it.
    Then we grab the window corrds (x,y,w,h) and create a hidden window of the actuall app with a different title set to those coords. Then we destroy the dummy window, and retitle the actual app window to the embed title and allow RR to very nicely just pop the window into place.

    Hope this better explains what I'm pretty sure that he is getting at...

    I'm not very sure how to do this....is everything done in RR, like for example the dummy transparent window? Should it be an executable window?

    RR is only doing these things after it starts the exe, if not already running. Though, some apps do not their windows messed with when they are starting up. Its also easier to deal with when the app being embedded is one we have the source to and can get it work as such. Not saying RR could not try to embed an app more along what we do in the app it self. It could be modified to try doing it this way for that nice clean embedding experience...
