does anyone know, how to control a 3rd party program, which only provides a GUI as an interface, via OO?
Thanks and regards,

You can record your application interactions using hp virtual user generator tool HP VUGEN
This tool comes for free with HP (BPM) BSM and HP Loadrunner
It has a command line to re-execute the recorded actions (script); you can use this command in HP OO

For Web UI:
For example: you can create using Watin an exe file (that will do all the automation part) and then run this file remotely via OO WMI operation.
For Applications GUI : see this list or use HP VUGEN - another option as mentioned above.
ALL of the methods above are not 100% stable!

Those scripts are auto generated you don't need to write them, you may need to modify them.
It has a guided recorder which records your action and convert it to a script, you can use command line to execute the script.
This document has all the needed guide to master vugen
the command line details is located on Page128

Depending on your 3rd party application, it may also be possible to your the HTTP Client integrations to craft a workflow providing HTTP GET, PUT, POST to the server. I've done this with several third party applications lacking a web services api interface. If you decide to do this Fiddler2 is a great tool to use to see the HTTP query and response. There are other tools as well which would help.
