QuestionUsing ShellExecute or CreateProcess caller lose its focus Pin

I want to call an external application (created by me) using ShellExecute or CreateProcess. It is just an update application for the main app. The problem is, what ever I tried I failed to get window focus back to my main app when the process (update app) is terminated. I created a simple MFC/SDI app that calls window's notepad under "C:\windows\notepad.exe" which suffers from the same problem, just to show you what I mean. I need the parent window -which is the main app- to be disabled (like a modal dialog box behaviour) until the new app -update application- will finish its job.

PS:If I do not disable the main window with EnableWindow(FALSE) I have paint corruption with windows XP and back when I move the update application.

Here an example:
