Has anyone had any success in gstting a browse for file dialog to return the file name and path in Win7 x64?
I have tried Shell.Application, safrcdlg.dll and the IE file open all fail.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I use MSComDlg.CommonDialog to present the browsing dialogs.

Looking at an older script I have which uses the Shell.Application object, I noticed the bunch of constants used to define the "view" e.g. SFVVO_SHOWALLOBJECTS and I'm wondering whether these are different for x64?

However, since you're in 64-bit land, you almost certainly have .Net: maybe you can use one of the .Net classes to pop the common dialogs such as FileOpen, FileSaveAs, fonts, all that junk?
