I have a modal window (in IE).  I need to be able to automatically close the window if the script time's out or errors out.  

The modal window is hidden from the user, so I can not rely on them.

I need this to be VBScipt, NOT Javascript.

Thanka,
Chris

Actually it is possible, I just figured it out.  You can actually use <%@language="vbscript" TRANSACTION=required %>, and trap the ASP 0113 error using MTS, then run a sub calling "document.parentWindow.parent.window.close"

Thanks,
Chris

OOps, I meant I was wanting to close it client side.  Your right, it can not be closed server side, but the error can be trapped.
