Hi
I have WinForm application that contains OpenFileDialog.
The initial directory is a SharePoint directory (UNC).
The problem is that sometimes the OpenFileDialog "ignore" the initial directory and open it on a local drive.
does anyone familiar with that problem and can help?
Thanks

Use the code to set the default directory to open:

OpenFileDialog dialog = new OpenFileDialog();
dialog.InitialDirectory = {networkpath};
