I am trying to use the FolderBrowser dialog to select a computer. The dialog behaves correctly but once I have selected a computer and clicked OK the selection in empty. This behaviour is also present in the example FolderBrowserDemo. I set the FolderBrowseStyle to be BrowseForComputer and the StartLocation to be NetworkNeighborhood. Thanks

Hi Nik, Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. A QA report has been filed and, though a timeframe cannot be guaranteed, we will do our best to address this issue in a future update to Essential Tools. We are currently looking into this issue and I will update this message if and when we arrive at a workaround/fix. Prakash Syncfusion, Inc.

Nik, This issue has been addressed. The FolderBrowser component that ships with the next update to Essential Tools(due in a couple of weeks) will return the name of the selected computer in the FolderBrowser.DirectoryPath property. Prakash Syncfusion, Inc.
