W9x vs. Win32 Open File Dialog Box Behavior

I have an application that has a text box. At the end on the text box is the
standard elypsis (command button) for launching the Open File Dialog box. I
want the user to select a certain executable and have the full path and file
name written back into the text box. This is all pretty simple and working
well in Windows 2000 and WIndows XP. However, In windows 98, when the user
selects the file and the selects the Open button to close the Open File
Dialog box or double clicks the file (it's a DOS file) a command prompt box
fires off and the file attempts to execute. This only happens in Windows 9x.
Am I missing a parameter somewhere? How can I make it just write the path
and file name to the text box without attempting to execute?

Thank you,
