Please let me know if there is any kind of setting to get this working
right?
using shell32.dll;
Shell32.ShellClass shl = new Shell32.ShellClass();
Shell32.Folder2 fld = (Shell32.Folder2)shl.BrowseForFolder(0, "Show Folder",

The C# side of ASP.NET runs at the server, but I'm guessing you want this to
appear at the client - in which case you need to limit yourself to [d]html
and javascript etc. Normally this means an <input type="file"/>. You can do
more, but it involves running something addition at the client - such as an
ActiveX control or Silverlight (which actually has pretty good support for
secure file browsing, from what I've seen...).
