Application opens File Exporer instead of DOpus

Hello, this is about a 3rd-party application I'm using. Its "Open Folder" function always opens File Explorer instead of DOpus. It open a normal explorer window, not the Save dialog. I've contacted the developer and he's not sure about what he needs to change.

Is there a Windows default call/environment variable/shell setting etc. he needs to be using? Perhaps you could provide some more technical info I could forward? Thanks.

It's often caused by using ShellExecuteEx on a folder with the "open" verb instead of leaving the verb NULL so that the default verb is used.

Sometimes it's caused by things explicitly running explorer.exe instead of using ShellExecuteEx or similar.
