Can you add getParentWindowByHandle() and getOwnerWindowByHandle()?
I think it would solve issues about auto selecting windows on desktop

Fixed that by chosing Match Precision: 65 points with Match Probility: 75% (same)

Thank you very much for your help. Unfortunately, as I found out, the problem why strokes plus is not working corectly is from my mouse program which implements double click by software. When I use the double click button strokes plus does not activate the window properly. Anyway thank you very much, at least I know which is the problem

This can be accomplished using Alien. Put the script below in your Global Lua:
aliencore = alien.core
user32 = aliencore.load("user32.dll")

-- ************ GetAncestor ************

gGetAncestor = user32.GetAncestor
gGetAncestor:types{ ret = 'long', abi = 'stdcall', 'long', 'uint'}

function aGetAncestor(iWnd, iFlags)
	return gGetAncestor(iWnd, iFlags)

-- ************ GetParent ************

gGetParent = user32.GetParent
gGetParent:types{ ret = 'long', abi = 'stdcall', 'long'}

function aGetParent(iWnd)
	return gGetParent(iWnd)

Then you can call them from your action scripts:
aGetAncestor(iHandle,GA_ROOT) --root window
aGetAncestor(iHandle,GA_ROOTOWNER) --absolute owner
aGetAncestor(iHandle,GA_PARENT) --parent window
aGetParent(iHandle) --pretty much the same as the line above, gets parent window

acGetWindowByPoint() does a prety good job in locating the subwindow and I think that finding the parent window by the returned handle is very usefull
