      I am not sure I understood the issue but can't you access theses controls
      by their title ?

      Anyway I am not a Windows developer but do you know why are there several
      controls with the same ID ? I don't know any valid reason for this
      (correct me if I am wrong) so I would consider this as a bug. If the
      Application you are using is in your control you should report this as
      a bug and get the developers fix this.

      Of course it means you have to reach a point where the developers actually
      make the application easily testable which might not be easy.
