It won't specifically answer your post here, but may offer leads on what you're after.  My C++ is pretty weak so I can't offer much on the way of explanation.  I have on occasion used code to write a micro-size batch files and executed them. (eg. generate a tmp.vbs file and then call that through a system call) - There may be a Windows API that can mimic the ^PrtSc or Alt-PrtSc keyboard interrupt sequence.  *IF* that works, then getting your image out of the copy buffer would be the next hurtle.
