To use WinWaitActive() you must know something about the window; as in title, text. You can put it in a loop to test for one or a couple possible pop ups, but that is going to be slow because the minimum timeout is 1sec. So you might be better off with a loop that uses just WinActive() and do your own timing with Sleep(), which can time in milliseconds, or TimerInit/TimerDiff. Another possibility is a loop with WinList() in it, giving you a complete list of all open windows to check.

Yet another possibility is to on go with your script and leave an AdLibEnable() function running periodically in the background to check for and handle the possible pop up.

What they all have in common is a loop run for a limited time that watches for the error pop up and handles it. Choosing one will require thinking about how many different errors you might see, how to identify each one (title/text/etc.), how to handle each one (i.e. click "OK"), and when to stop watching for them (after a certain amount of time, or when the "normal" window comes up).

...there will some kinds of error / warning msg pop-up...

If some msg pop-up always comes up, then WinWaitNotActive might work for you.

If these pop-up msgs only happen when there is a problem, then a timed loop like PsaltyDS mentioned with a series of If WinExists lines.
