Hi!
IMHO you have to derive your own class from CDocManager
and override
BOOL CDocManager::DoPromptFileName(CString& fileName, UINT nIDSTitle, DWORD lFlags, BOOL bOpenFileDialog, CDocTemplate* pTemplate)

BOOL CMyDocManager::DoPromptFileName(CString& fileName, UINT nIDSTitle, DWORD lFlags, BOOL bOpenFileDialog, CDocTemplate* pTemplate)
{
     CFileDialog dlgFile(bOpenFileDialog);

     CString title;
     VERIFY(title.LoadString(nIDSTitle));

     dlgFile.m_ofn.Flags |= lFlags;

     CString strFilter;
     CString strDefault;
     if (pTemplate != NULL)
     {
          ASSERT_VALID(pTemplate);
          _AfxAppendFilterSuffix(strFilter, dlgFile.m_ofn, pTemplate, &strDefault);
     }
     else
     {
          // do for all doc template
          POSITION pos = m_templateList.GetHeadPosition();
          BOOL bFirst = TRUE;
          while (pos != NULL)
          {
               CDocTemplate* pTemplate = (CDocTemplate*)m_templateList.GetNext(pos);
               _AfxAppendFilterSuffix(strFilter, dlgFile.m_ofn, pTemplate,
                    bFirst ? &strDefault : NULL);
               bFirst = FALSE;
          }
     }

     // append the "*.*" all files filter
     CString allFilter;
     VERIFY(allFilter.LoadString(AFX_IDS_ALLFILTER));
     strFilter += allFilter;
     strFilter += (TCHAR)'\0';   // next string please
     strFilter += _T("*.*");
     strFilter += (TCHAR)'\0';   // last string
     dlgFile.m_ofn.nMaxCustFilter++;

     dlgFile.m_ofn.lpstrFilter = strFilter;
     dlgFile.m_ofn.lpstrTitle = title;
     dlgFile.m_ofn.lpstrFile = fileName.GetBuffer(_MAX_PATH);

// changes!
//if fileName contains no path you have to set
      if (....)
         m_ofn.lpstrInitialDir = "c:\\Program files\\MyApp\\";

     int nResult = dlgFile.DoModal();
     fileName.ReleaseBuffer();
     return nResult == IDOK;
}

to use your own DocManager instead standart one yp have to add this lines in the your CWinApp derived class method InitApplication::
CMyApp::InitApplication()
{
   CDocManager::pStaticDocManage = new CMyDocManager;
}
