Bat script installer problem -SOLVED -

UPDATE: I :SOLVED: my Problem

 @echo off

set "psCommand="(new-object -COM 'Shell.Application')^
.BrowseForFolder(0,'PLEASE SELECT A LOCATION TO INSTALL GAME TOO.',0,0).self.path""

for /f "usebackq delims=" %%I in (`powershell %psCommand%`) do set "folder=%%I"

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
echo You chose !folder!
It needs Powershell or .Net installed on host, .Net is pretty standard these days on Windows, So should work without problems

Hey I'm writing my bat script to install a game and want the user to select where they wish to install the game
I can do this with the input syntax /p %input%
But I don't really want them to have to type in the destination, is there a way or any known program that can open a file browser and return the result as a %input% I can use in my bat
If so please share as I really want this feature
