Hi totufin,

I think it would be neccessary to know some more details for answering your question.

In C#, they are accessible in the Runtime function, the variable is called "variables". This one holds all variables, in the form as <varName>,<varValue>.
E.g. Two variables, then : myVar1,23,myVar2,5

In this case I am trying to populate a variables combox in my plugin dialog with variables from the InstallAware script. For example, for Set Variables:

But currently I am having a bigger problem where I briefly see my dialog window and then everything freezes in IA. Ahh the life of a newbie...
