Status Property (WshScriptExec)

                      Object.Status

Object

WshScriptExec object.

The Status property is used when a program is run asynchronously.

The Status property returns a value from an enumerated type.

WshFinished ( = 1)

The following code runs calc.exe and echoes the final status to the screen.

Dim WshShell, oExec
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("calc")

Do While oExec.Status = 0
     WScript.Sleep 100
Loop

WScript.Echo oExec.Status
var WshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
var oExec = WshShell.Exec("calc");

while (oExec.Status == 0)
{
     WScript.Sleep(100);
}

WScript.Echo(oExec.Status);
