I sell an application that supports vbscript in it's forms, and on
some I use UserAccounts.CommonDialog to display a File Open dialog so
a user can select a filename.
On Vista, this functionality is not available. My question: is there
an alternative for Vista that does not require distributing any
Some background info:
My searches so far revealed that the following alternatives are
available, none of them are very appealing
-Using MSComDlg.CommonDialog, which requires installing the Common
Dialog control, which is subject to licensing
-Using SAFRCFileDlg.FileSave, which also requires installing an
additional control, and which is deprecated and not originally
intended for use in scripting in the first place.
-Using Choose File HTML File Control Object, a workaround that
(ab)uses IE, that I find inventive but very ugly..
