VBScript Secure password input?

By Seagull Data Services ·
Greetings to all. I have a five line VB script which requires password input. The script runs from a shortcut icon and uses the following line to get the password from the user:
...
pwd=inputbox("Enter Password:", "Password Required")
...
Inputbox doesn't seem to have an option to hide the password being input. Is there an alternative method of getting the input which will allow me to hide the password?

Unfortunately, this isn't an option or I'd be doing the whole lot in VB rather than VBScript.
What I need is a method of doing exactly what you describe using VBScript only.
Thanks for trying.
