Setting where the 'Save Image' in VFB goes to....

This might seem pinickety but I'm trying to at least point our artists to the correct folders to save their render tests. There's the project paths settings that we can set....

ie. SetDir #renderoutput "c:\\temp"

But when you do a quick render and go to save your image from the VFB the folder it chooses appears to be a bit random, or at least as far as I can tell it uses the sysInfo.currentdir, which is whereever you last navigated to a folder within max. So if you save your maxfile in ie "c:\temp\maxfile" next time you go to save an image from the VFB, the save image dialog will be pathed to "c:\temp\maxfile".

If I do sysInfo.currentdir = "C:\\temp" and then open the VFb and go to save it, it's still in the "C:\temp\maxfile" folder

Is there any way to set what folder the VFB save dialog defaults to?
