First a little backgound info. We have a networked application in which our midrange, (AS400) will create a MS Word template and forward the template to a remote computer. The remote computer will "fire up" MS Word when it receives the template and have Word add some finishing touches. Word will print the document and then save the document using Save As with a timestamp to name the document. The remote computer is an unattended workstation meaning that an administrator initially logs into the computer and then locks the computer.
The problem that we have is that Word occasionally hangs when the Word Automation starts the Save As function. what I need to do is somehow monitor Word on the remote computer to determine if it has hung while it is attempting to do Save As.
