I have an If statement that I am getting an error on. The error is on the Or statement

If $title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" Or                  ;32bit
    $title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\" Then      ;64bit
;Something I do when it's correct
ElseIf $title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = $ProgramFiles & "FireFox\" Then
;Something I do when it's not correct
Else
;It didn't find what it's supposed to
EndIf

may want to use parentheses to group your conditions, what exactly is the error you're getting?

Sorry I didn't include the exact wording. It says.

Error: "If" statements must have a Then Keyword.

It's stopping on the line with the Or at the end.

Thanks,

I fixed two errors.

If ($title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" Or ($title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\") Then
;Something I do when it's correct
ElseIf $title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = $ProgramFiles & "FireFox\" Then
;Something I do when it's not correct
Else
;It didn't find what it's supposed to
EndIf

One error I fixed is I put both lines onto one line. I guess I don't know how to continue a statement onto a second line.

Second I didn't have a space before (x86) "C:\Program Files (x86)"

It's fixed now.

Thanks,

..I guess I don't know how to continue a statement onto a second line.

Use & _ (ampersand, space, underscore)

$string = "This is text that's not really too long, and, " & _
"This is more text"
ConsoleWrite($string & @LF)

; This may work..

If ($title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\" Or & _
    ($title = "Mozilla Firefox Setup " And $TextLine[8] = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\") Then

You only use the & when you want to concatenate two strings. _ alone is how you continue lines. It just has to be the last non-comment character on the line.
