Display message box that disappears

Hello,

      Looking for a solution to do the following in a Remote Desktop Farm.
#1 Start a script that displays a message box about another vbscript that will be running concurrently. ie. "The special printer script is running, do not start App X until it is complete"
Also, the message cannot be closed by the user.
#2 Code in that message box script that monitors for the completion of the the other vbscript.
#3 Code that then dispays the other script is complete and exits automatically. ie."The special printer script is complete, you can now start App X"

OR embed that code into the "special printer script" (which is a vbscript)

Possibly an HTA would work, but I want to ask the experts at EE.

Thanks,
Greg
