I am developing a VB application where i need to give a pop-up message on the arrival of a new message, for which i have the following code,

wshShell.PopUp("You have got a new message", 5, "New message Arrival", 0 & 64) = 1

The code works fine.
But, i also get the following error message after displaying the message for the specified no. of seconds. The error message is

" Run-Time error 451
Property let procedure not defined and Property get procedure did not return an object "
