ShellExecute and Wait for response
Posted on 1998-07-10
The steps that I am taking are the following:
1. Execute something using the Shell command under vbHide, which returns a program's task id.
2. Wish to monitor the task id and not continue until that task id has completed.
I want to us the appropriate API calls in a while loop.
Keep in mind I know the command line to MAP a drive.
I'm sure this is easily done with a shell command, but what the main purpose of this is to MAP and Network drive (we know what the computer name to network is) blind to the user, then UNMAP it when we are done with the task which we have started.
If there is a better or easier way without shell command I'm up for options.
Sorry I can offer more points I have been too generous in the past and only have 101 total points left. Don't know why but it also said I have 151 Point available, isn't that backwards?
