I really don't know, it's an executable file downloaded from the internet.
There's a way to acces a temp file of the app and to ectract data from there?

Unless the app provides a better solution, you will need to ask to capture the screen in that area, and then do Optical Character Recognition.
Apps like you show seldom create temporary files.
It might happen to be the case that you can use Java Robot to activate the File menu and maybe there is a "save" item there.
