For example when trying to create a new project, a browser pops up that allows selecting a destination folder. This browser only shows normal folders, not shortcut folders.

To reproduce (Windows 7 x64):
- Create a folder on the Desktop.
- Right-click on the folder and create a shortcut.
- Open Texniccenter and open the create-project dialog, open the file-browser, browse to Desktop, and only the normal folder is visible, not the shortcut.

Severity:
In Windows 7, network drives or often not mounted as local drives anymore, so it is not possible with Texniccenter to create new projects on a network drive.

Workaround:
Create a project locally, then copy it to network drive. Then it can be used normally, by double-clicking on the .tcp file.

Example:
On my Windows 7 (x64) machine, I have on my Desktop several shortcut folders that are backed by either network drives or links to local folders. This is where I store documents, so it would be nice to have them accessible via the file-browser.

    We would need to use an entirely new dialog. Possible. In fact, most progs use a normal file dialog to browse for a folder.

    Just need to re-implement this one class.
