AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode","2") ; set the select mode to select using substring

if $CmdLine[0] < 2 then
; Arguments are not enough
msgbox(0,"Error","File_Upload_FF.exe 'Dialog Title' 'Path of the file'")
Exit
EndIf

; wait Until dialog box appears
WinWait($CmdLine[1]) ; match the window with substring

Instead of doing this, what you can do is set Selenium in *chrome mode and use the selenium.attachFile(String fieldLocator, String fileLocator) method. By setting Selenium in the *chrome mode, you are bringing down the heightened security restrictions. Javascript is not allowed to upload a file when the input type is file as that can possibly used to upload malicious files into a server.
