File Explorer window prompt to store file location to variable?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I tried looking for this answer but I couldn't find it through a google search so I'm going to attempt this here.

I'm trying to make a script that has all of the configurations of installation and settings changes hard coded but I want the user to be able to run the program installer from wherever they want including a UNC path and despite file name. I'm brand new to this and haven't started working with GUIs yet but I got a script working that allows me to install and configure my first program. However, it runs via the local path of the script: 

                                                                                                                  Run(@ScriptDir & "\ClassicShellSetup_4_3_1.exe")

I'd like to have a variable set in the Run() function parameter that points to a file path so that the program can run despite location and set that variable as a permanently saved variable that can be invoked when the program is run.


The reason I want to do this is because we have alot of different clients and I want to set their installers path once so if a tech comes in they can run a client automation program install from the server after the installer path is set once.

I'd like to use the file browser so they can type a UNC path to the server share and select file path so it passes it and saves the value and the AutoIT script handles the file from there.

I am not nearly as pro as you guys so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. This is my first day working on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
