VB Script Check for active process.

Hello Experts

Could someone help me with a script issue. Down bellow i have a script for run a installation with higher privileges. I want a function for checking that msiexec is running and not end the script until msiecexe.exe process is shutdown.

Option explicit
dim oShell
set oShell= Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run "runas /user:ad\lcladmin ""msiexec /i c:\zentest\zfdagent.msi /qb!"""
WScript.Sleep 100
oShell.Sendkeys "Password~"
WScript.Quit

Thanks

Mattias

Not sure if this will work with "runas"...

You could try the Exec() method instead so that you can poll the running state:

The example in the above link shows how to loop until the app is complete.
