process timeout

I have a VI that sends a message to a DSP to cause it to Initialize.  On occasion, it doesn't return.  I'm trying to figure out how, at the calling level, to implement a timeout mechanism to keep this type of problem from hanging my entire program.  I attached my initial attempt, but this really doesn't do what I need it to do.  Any suggestions, examples?

If it hangs in the DSP Download (EMIFB VI), can you use a global, queue, etc. to stop the VI on the timeout?


Since I don't know what's in that VI, I'm uncertain of whether you can abort the process.
