Regularly a .bat file is run at will by a user every day. I would like some sort of a message that alerts the user that the routine is still running and not to interrupt it. In other words, if the .bat file is still working away, the user should be alerted that the 'program' is still running and not to interrupt it etc.., and they should not have the ability, if a pop up message comes up or stays up to click on 'ok' and then the message disappears. It needs to stay on the screen until the .bat file has run it's course, in it's entirety. When the .bat file is finished, then the message should go away. Perhaps a count down message would be good, if possible however the .bat file could take longer to run at different intervals so that may not be possible. Regardless, a message should come up which does not interfere with the running of the commands in the .bat file, stay up during the entirety of the running of the .bat file and then it should disappear when the .bat file routine has totally finished.
