This question is kinda hard: I need to change the directory of an Open/Save dialog (standard Windows dialogs) of an other running application (so NOT my own). Is this possible ?

That's not what I mean. I want to change the directory of an open/save dialog box of an OTHER application than my own !
This other application is You'r ?

If both is You'r you can send message to the other.

If the second is not you'r then this is possible only for some application and for only some users (Win NT you must have Debug privilages).
This is dangerous for the other application so i think that you'r problem need be resolved in another way.
