My comment:
The OPENFILENAME structure length depends on the OS, and can be 76 or 88 bytes.

This is important, because invalid parameter creates an error. Note that this structure is used with GetOpenFileName and GetSaveFileName functions. There is substantial set of OFN flags to control the dialog behaviour.

To fill the OPENFILENAME structure -- as well as almost all other Comdlg structures used -- you need not just strings but pointers to strings. There is a class PChar in this examples, which creates such extended strings. In more simple cases the StrDup is quite enough to accomplish this task.
