FolderBrowseDialog in VB.NET

P: n/a
Hi,

I a facing a problem regarding use of a FolderBrowseDialog in VB.NET.
If i select a long path name using the browse dialog then
I am getting exception when I say ok to use the selected path in my
application.

What could be the problem. This is the case only when the selected
path is long and not always.

Thanks in Advance.

What is the exception? Could it possibly be in the code you have written
following the dialog? If it could be, show us what you are doing with the
file dialog.

That's a known bug in .NET 1.1 without SPs applied:
