e2e script not detecting window in IE

I'm having trouble getting an e2e script to detect windows in IE.  The application 'HP Application Lifecycle Management 11.00' opens in IE (after installing some files) but using the Spy tool in Nim Recorder on any part of the window gives me window names like

 

ALM-CLIENT.EXE|WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.33c0d9d|HP Application Lifecycle Management 11.00 - Windows Internet Explorer|39

 

When I click on Validate it says 'Invalid window name'.  When I try to do Wait for Bitmap or any other wait with InWindow it fails to find the window.  I've also tried

 

a$=currentpage$()

UsePage(Currentpage$())

 

but that fails with the same unable to find window message.

 

I've tried this on Windows XP and Windows 7 64 bit, both using IE8 and using e2e_appmon 2.0 and 2.2.  Any ideas? :smileyfrustrated:
