The other program is a bought statistics program and I cant save the variable to file because it changes real time. Isnt there someway to read activity in a window belonging to this statistics program.
I want this number in this window as an argument for a function and that everytime it changes.


You could TRY getting a handle to the window, using SendMessage WM_GetText and see if you get the text. If you do, sort through it for the variable you want..

Another way would be to hook the program and grab the information you want. Also one other way I can think of is to ReadProcessMemory. This should be used if you know how to get the memory address of the variable you want to read.
