Instead of opening the application, can the criteria and file location be given through a script, the application runs in the back ground, and then the results are exported to an excel doc?

Yes, you can run the program via the command line and output to a file in CSV format, which can be opened directly in Excel, e.g.

filelocatorpro.exe -d "C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft" -o "E:\result.csv" -ofc

Additional information

If you are using the Pro version of the product you can use the console app flpsearch.exe to run the search, which is easier to detect when the search has finished.
