Use the popup method instead - you can set it to disappear after x amount of
time - here's the sample from the 5.6 Script Engine documentation:
Dim WshShell, BtnCode
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
BtnCode = WshShell.Popup("Do you feel alright?", 7, "Answer This Question:",
4 + 32)
Select Case BtnCode
case 6 WScript.Echo "Glad to hear you feel alright."
case 7 WScript.Echo "Hope you're feeling better soon."
case -1 WScript.Echo "Is there anybody out there?"
Run the script and let it sit. After 7 seconds, it will reply with "Is
anybody out there?" -
Hope this helps you,
