Console Wait Not Active

3 posts in this topic

I know there's no such command as "ConsoleWaitNotActive",

but is there anyway I can work around to make it possible?

I have a program that activates the DOS console, which takes some time to close depending on the parameters issued to it. You can think of the program as a DOS based encrypter or decrypter as an example.

I need to do other commands only after the program has completed its task.

So far I've tried ProcessWait and WinWaitNotActive types of combinations, they don't work at all.

Any suggestions?
