All i have a windows form and i want to show a folder browse window inside of the form, i'd prefer not to have another window pop up but have like a imagelist or something to allow me to traverse the folders of the desired root path, which has be able to take a UNC path,  and when i select the folder allow it to return back to my program

I have tried to used the browsefolder dialog however i can get the root folder to set to a UNC path.

Any Help is Appreciated
