I am really stuck and I can''t solve this problem (my head hurts). Does anyone know how to make dialog box to select folder. I''ve tried overriding CFileDialog but that does not work. Hook functions don''t work to. I just need to know how to select folder using common dialog boxes

Unfortunately, MFC doesn''t have a built-in folder selection dialog. You''ll have to use some Windows Shell code, namely SHBrowseForFolder.

I''ve tried that but it doesn''t seem to work. I guess I should create my own class after all.
