    I'm trying to embed WM6 Emulator in RR and meet the same problem because the WM6 Emulator window is non-resizable. Searching in the forum and then found this thread but did not see an effective solution.
    Has anyone successfully solve this problem?

    As you see in Post 12 of this same thread.. though the emulator is incredibly slow on low power machines...

    The solution is to:

    1-If you can set the window name of the emulator, use a simple window name with no spaces, make sure you
    2-Match the embed area ("A" definition in the skin) to the size of the window without the border (which RR will remove when embedding). You can do this by using winspector spy to remove the WS_BORDER, WS_DLGFRAME and WS_THICKFRAME from the "Edit window styles" menu option after selecting the window. Once you remove those window styles you should see and be able to measure the window size without the border and use the width and height in RR.

    Thanks for Guino's response. I have tried with Winspector but failed to get the actual size of the window.

    1. I think the window name should be ok because when I put the name as an external GPS in RRconfig, RR will try to adjust the WM Emulator window for embedding.
    2. The WM Emulator is a so "strange" program -- While I'm trying to find out the actual window size by winspector, after remove the WS_BORDER, I found the window size is same as the window with WS_BORDER. The window title bar has been removed, but it adds a blank area at the bottom, see below picture.



    When I remove the WS_DLGFRAME, the window edge of WM Emulator will keep jumping with struggle, which make the CPU almost 100% load

    BTW, the original window has no WS_THICKFRAME in list.

    It seems that the WM Emulator is a very special program which does not like to be embeded
