  • I don't think there is anyway of checking to see if a script has hung.

    You could use a timer to automatically stop the script after a certain amount of time just in case the script does hand. or use PowerShell jobs to get the status of the job?

    Job Examples

    Learn PowerShell                     Script Requests

  • One simple method is to start a transcript and look at it after the script has been killed.
