New construction windows often come with a top flashing. If not, check with the manufacturer, or check a local lumberyard, NOT big box. The verticle flashing goes under any housewrap, then cover with your flashing tape, The edge should overhang the window edge, and slope to form a drip edge. Caulk under the flashing/window joint.
Hey hrjrkr: Thanks for the great suggestion, I tried that and unfortunately behind the jam there is nothing... no wood. I took a strong flashlight and looked and all there is is air I thought about using water putty, but don't know if it will allow the screws to grab hold. I used it in the past in other places and sometimes it just kinda flakes of. Any other ideas? Thanks again and take care Dan in Atlanta
Is the hole big enough so you can slide a piece of wood long enough so that you can use a couple of screws through the frame to hold that piece of wood and than screw your hinge into that? Anothe way is to take out one of the moldings off and stick a peice of wood behind the frame where the hinge screws to.
