Yeah. That's the irony, that those OS dialogs are nothing but pointers to files and folders (ultimately). It makes perfect sense to use the folder browser dialog to search for missing files, but you could do the exact same thing with a File Open dialog, which already has a text box on it.

Just use the folder path it returns, not the literal file name, or get the path from the long file name.
