Hi - I use hotkeys to automate stuff at work, where we all (120+ employees) work on an IE app that requires entry of data, waiting for screen changes, switching to other apps and pasting data, etc.  I've got some things well-automated on my machine.  Problem is everyone has a slightly different configuration and most all have zero native ability to re-configure a script to their machine.  

What I'm looking for is the rough shell of a script, that on first-run on user's machine, it would ask simple questions or give simple instructions as it progressed, to obtain the references it needs to "gel" into a workable code on that users machine.  

Sounds much more complicated than a "snack", but wanted to get the idea in writing so it could be fleshed out.  Hopefully, this is not something long ago figured out by folks smarter than me!

Maybe I am missing something, but I think it would be very script specific.  Perhaps make a GUI/menu/whatever for your current scripts asking about the variables?  That would be my only thought.
