I haven't seen your reply.

I think that this way you tell GetSaveFileNameA that it can write 
Length(DefaultFileName)+1 chars in Pchar(DefaultFileName),
but you have only allocated Length(DefaultFileName) chars to 
DefaultFileName .

It's unlikely, but this way you can end up with the corruption of the 
byte right  after the memory block DefaultFileName is pointing to ...
