if you mean that you want to locate an .exe file then you want to start the chosen app. then you have to start the process by the file path not only the file name.

Solution 1

Use the FolderBrowserDialog class

if (ofd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
   FolderBrowserDialog dialog = new FolderBrowserDialog();
   dialog.SelectedPath = Path.GetDirectoryName(ofd.FileName);
   textBox1.Text = dialog.SelectedPath;
