I have a powershell script that runs as part of an unattended Vista build. It has a pretty long execution time. Getting build engineers to understand that the powershell window should not be closed halfway through script execution as the build has not "hung" can be tiresome. I am currently rectifying this problem by outputting progress to an IE window, displaying progress updates etc. but am wondering if there is a simple way when executing a script of preventing a user from closing the window? (Like turn the 'x' button of the window title bar grey color?)
