    As well as being created in the background, the error also doesn't always show up in the same place either. So relying on moving the mouse and clicking wouldn't work, either.
    From the picture there the other option would be checking what windows have the icon. Assuming it isn't on any other pages you need?

    This could be an issue as Win 3.x apps run in under a seperate "emulation" layer called WinOldApp I think ? Win 3.x was 16-bit, Windows 95 onwards was 32-bit so this layer was used to translate ("thunk") the calls between the two different systems.

    Out of curiosity, what does this relic of an application actually do?!

    As for closing the popup window, I'd go for @Steve21's solution of looking for the specific window icon is a good one as long as it's unique. Alternatively, you could check the dialog text for the specific string it displays.

    If all else fails, you could try Sikuli.

    Does the person or company that created this ancient application not have a newer version available?
