File/Folder Selection Behavior on Windows

I am just about done with a project but there are 2 issues which the 
client would like resolved:

1) Being able to select multiple files when using answer file
2) Setting default folder to My Documents when using answer folder

I have been searching through various forums for ways to do this but 
have not found any yet.  From what I can tell the defaultFolder is 
broken on Windows.  I have seen some posts that say it can't be done on 
Windows but I have seen other Windows apps that seem to be using the 
default folder browser in Windows and they set it to My Documents so I 
think it should be possible.  Selecting an Output Folder in Camtasia 
Studio Recorder seems to set the default folder for example.

I haven't seen any ideas on the possibility of selecting multiple files.

So does anyone have some additional insight into how either of these 
things could be accomplished?
