    Is there a way to set a maximum time on execution of a vbscript from within the vbscript itself?

    Eg. in some languages you can set an alarm function near the beginning which terminates the script with a custom message if execution of the rest of the script takes longer than X seconds.

    In any event I need it to be portable and not rely on installing the .NET framework. It has to come bundled with all modern windows versions, 2000/2003/XP…
