I am running the following code and after my get file via MSHTA, it locks up and I get a script error. Confusing thing is... not everyone that uses this gets the error and some people can run it, no problem. Any assistance would be great!

Main reason is because the StdOut pipe has been closed at the time ReadLine
is performed.

This may be due to failed on process execution, or succeeded on process
execution but the process ends before ReadLine is performed.

And IME, buffer overrun may also cause same/similar pipe related error.

I'd suggest checking the execution status first. If it doesn't fail, perform
ReadLine. After ReadLine, perform ReadAll by its own (ignore the result) to
eat any remaining data in the pipe buffer. Then perform a sleep of 1ms to
let the process completely terminates. Clean up then exit function.
