is there a way to make a gui with powershell so i can enter data to modify paths, etc.

i would like to have a gui so the user can select the type of computer they want to check/install programs on.
I currently have a working script to install adobe flash silently against a list of computers
but lets say i want to check for teamviewer, firefox, etc
i want the user to be able to simply enter the correct path to check for and then also the path to the install program.
i can do it manually by modifying the code each time but it would be easier with a gui.  Can someone help me.
below is workable code using the command line.

<# 
 . Program name: flashinstaller.ps1

 . Purpose: See if adobe shockwave/flash is installed. if not then install it silently
 .

easiest option is to get user input.

try something like:

$suggestedpath = Read-Host -Prompt 'Please input the path (eg c:\test\)'

may be worth a little post processing to check the variable contains a valid path (in case the user enters something incorrectly.)
