Hi,

I am looking for a working example in VBScript to use the API waitforsingleobject.  I have working code for this in VB6 but need this for VBScript as well.  

Thanks.

You cannot call the API from vbscript.  However, you can shell and wait for a process to return:


http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/d5fk67ky.aspx
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 
Return = WshShell.Run("notepad " & WScript.ScriptFullName, 1, true)  'True parameter specifies to wait for return
