Help with Timer in Do/Until Loop

Recommended Posts

HockeyFan

Hello!

Can someone help me with a Do/Until loop that only waits 10 minutes to see if a condition is meet and then exits the loop?

I have the following Do/Until loop that currently waits until the registry key is created...

Do
    Sleep(5000)
    $RegKey = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\TVD\VirusScan Enterprise\CurrentVersion\Tasks\{A14CD6FC-3BA8-4703-87BF-E3247CE382F5}", "szTaskName")
Until $RegKey = "AutoUpdate"

...but now I only want it to wait a maximum of 10 minutes.

Any help would be greatly appriciated! ;)

Thanks.
