I use the following ciode in VBS to pause a script until the user presses enter. But it looks like this only works the first time the Sub is called. Is there a way around that?
Sub pauseScript()
	Dim strMessage, Input
	strMessage = vbNewLine & "Press ENTER to continue."
	Wscript.StdOut.Write strMessage
	WScript.Echo vbNewLine & "(CTRL-C) to cancel."

	Do While Not WScript.StdIn.AtEndOfLine
		Input = WScript.StdIn.Read(1)
End Sub
