How to simulate a mouse click of the screen on Windows XP ?

I've tried various software (it seems) for doing this. I'm finding it either can't be scheduled or it doesn't work with Windows XP. I think AutoHotKey could do it but I can't wrap my head around how to use it. Basically we have an old Windows box which is solely and simply used for displaying (in VLC) the output of two IP cameras on the screen.

I have managed to automate the opening and resizing of the two windows so that they load on boot, but about 8 times out of 10 the resizing doesn't quite work and one of the windows simply needs a mouse click on it to bring it into focus and my resizing script recognises there's a job to be done and it's instantly resized and brought to heel.

Anyone know of a script, tool, program, macro I can use to automate a click on the errant VLC window (can be anywhere on the window) so that my script can do the rest?

many thanks!!
