Create a list of variables via a wildcard

I would like to create some variables that would list 3-4 files with the same name, but have different extensions.  So the user can click on a file such as:  \\server\location\testfile.xpi and then I can get a list of all the files with the same name but have different extensions such as:
X=\\server\location\testfile.xpi
Y=\\server\location\testfile.zip
Z=\\server\location\testfile.lsi

I currently have my script setup to where the user can click on one filename and create the x variable, but not sure how I can automate it to add the other 2-3 variables.
Thanks, Chad

See:

Strip off the extension and replace it with *:

    \\server\location\testfile.*

Pass that to GetFiles() and it will return the list you want...

there's the FileInfo class in system.IO, where you can separate filenames from extensions, or directory names, etc. its pretty useful
