Can't add a custom wallpaper folder.. WHY???

Hi my friends.. i've a really worst problem..

in the windows 7 panel to customize wallpaper.. i can choose only the default wallpaper that stored in windows7 wallpaper folder.. if click over browse button, and choose an alternative folder.. and click ok.. anything happened.. how if i click over cancel instead ok..
