A way to solve it:
1. Create and start the threads. Each thread increments a synchronized global thread counter.

2. Have each thread signal that is is finished by decrementing the global counter.

3. Put the main process on a timer that periodically tests the counter, and idles the rest of the time. When the count gets to zero, take the next action.

Thread..::.Join Method

Blocks the calling thread until a thread terminates, while continuing to perform standard COM and SendMessage pumping.
