Sorry: I didn't correctly read the OP. The dialog to select a directory is
indeed provided with tcl/tk, as you can tell by its "old-fashioned" look. There
is apparently no native directory selection dialog in Windows, or if there is,
maybe we should tell the tcl/tk guys... ;-)

Then apparently, you have one: according to the tcl/tk documentation for the
underlying function (tk_chooseDirectory), such an option does not exist. See:
> Does Tkinter have a other function to open a directory select box?
Nope. I couldn't find any in the common Tkinter extensions, so I guess you'll
have to make one yourself. This should be quite easy with the os module and a
few list boxes.
