SCCM HTA appears behind task sequence during Vista PE OSD deployment

I have a HTA form that prompts for user input at the start of a SCCM 2007 RC2 tasks sequence.

When it launches (under windows Vista PE), the HTA appears behind the task sequence dialogue.

How do I make the HTA appear in front of the task sequence dialogue so it is ready for user input?

Is there a VBS command I can use to make the HTA form come to the foreground onload?

ie: in the "Sub Window_OnLoad"  section

If you are using wshshell.run, you can use the intWindowsStyle option to play with how the window displays.  My guess is that you'd want 1 or 3.

I ended up finding a *.exe to perform this function

http://www.commandline.co.uk/cmdow/

and added a SUB Routine to the Sub Window_OnLoad

 Sub Bring_HTA_to_Font_Most_Window
         Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
         objShell.Run "..\HTA\POPHTA.CMD"
 End Sub


COMMAND FILE "POPHTA.CMD
"cmdow.exe" "Workstation Naming" /TOP /ACT
