You're trying to interact with the COM control in a non-COM manner. You need to continue using COM methods and properties in order to get what you want out of the FileSelect class. I have never used the Program Compatibility Controls, though, so I can't help you with the specifics. But I do have a question. I'm not sure I understand why you're using this approach to create a file selection control, though. Why not just use common controls like an input box, button, and label, and hook them together with a FileOpenDialog()?

Something like this, triggered by a button or something:

$var = FileOpenDialog($message, @WindowsDir & "\", "Images (*.jpg;*.bmp)", 1 + 4 )

If @error Then
    MsgBox(4096,"","No File(s) chosen")
    $var = StringReplace($var, "|", @CRLF)
    MsgBox(4096,"","You chose " & $var)
