SendMessage to Tray Icon

Visual Basic 6

Ok the problem im having is that im searching the process list to see if an application is running, if it isnt open it (Ive got that bit already) the only problem is, is that it opens and goes straight to system tray.

What i want to do is send a command to it to make it open, ive looked at some tutorials n stuff and if u had the window handle it would be SW_SHOW. But how do i send that command to an exe rather than than a window.

im not too sure if an application minimized to the tray has a window handle so any help would be appreciated. if i can get the application showing from the system tray that would be a great help.

Kind Regards
Devon.
