Check for open window



Hi all,

is there any possibility to check if a certain Window exists on a remote Server (e.g. Demo.txt - Editor), maybe by a custom sensor with a vbs script?

the EXE/Script sensor would be the way to go here but I'm not sure if it is possible to check for open windows by script.
Best regards
