Is it possible to launch a file chooser in VBScript? I need to prompt the user to select a file and then have my VBscript read the selected file. Real simply in Java but I just haven't found a way from a VBScript to do this.

Simple example:

    Set cd = CreateObject("UserAccounts.CommonDialog")
    result = cd.ShowOpen
    If result = True Then
        WScript.Echo "Selected file: " & cd.FileName
    End If
