randallc Posted February 5, 2005 Report Share Posted February 5, 2005 Hi, Paul, From: Paul Thornett <email@example.com>To: Subject: Re: VBS Scriptng / ADSI, etc. Date: 06/11/2004 It's a bit more complicated than that. When ME calls such a program, control returns immediately to ME - often that's not what is wanted, and you have to find a way to persuade ME to wait until the external program has finished. In our PGM library functions, I've written a shell that accepts calls to VB6 functions I have written and fires them off asynchronously. As usual, control returns immediately to ME. There's an ME function I've written that then polls a specific registry value to see when the external process is complete (or has timed out according to a user-settable value) - this registry value is controlled by the VB6 shell. -- Paul Thornett In old newsgroups; where do I find this in PGM functions?
