No idea then. It's working fine here in various Windows versions.
You can run the script from the script editor/debugger, when launching from the shell context menu, by pressing the CTRL key when invoking the script.

yes I've been using it this way - only way it works to bring up the query dialog parameter box. if not in debugger mode, it skips the dialog box and goes straight to the save as output window.

actually after posting here I came up with the thought that if maybe I added another script in front of it, somehow that might fix the glitch and open the dialogue box - and it did.  ;D

That's interesting!
Try adding, instead of that script, a pdfe.sleep(2000); line or a pdfe.echo("starting"); one and try again.
