3 posts in this topic

Greeting,

I have a script as below: the program looking for "c:\autoexec.bat", if it find it then show the message, the program finish. if not then wait for 1 second check again, until it show up the quit.

The question is if can not get the file "c:\autoexec.bat", I want this script (will compile to EXE file). stop and quit after 5 minutes, How can I do that?

Thanks

usera

    if TimerDiff($timer) > 1000 * 60 * 5 then 
        $iCase = 2
