if you use MFC, you can use CFileDialog. if using SDK,
you can you GetOpenFileName() API,but it's more complex tan using CFileDialog

 Here is a pice of code you can use. I have tried to keep it as simple as posible so if you want something more, plese let me now. Also let me now if it does (does not) work.

CString pathname;

  CFileDialog f_browser(true,NULL,NULL);
   if (f_browser.DoModal()==IDOK)
     {
         pathname=f_browser.GetPathName();
     }
