Hi Everyone!

I did an application that parses a text file to transfer the data to  a
paradox database.  When I run it on Win95, it works fine.  When I run it on
WinNT 4.0, I receive an I/O error 103.  My questions are:

- Is there a difference in file handling between Win95 and WinNT?
- How can I solve this problem?
- Where can I find documentation on such error codes?

Thank you for your help!!!

Yes, in WinNT 4.0 you need to take permissions into account - does your user have rights to access the file ?

Also, the urban legend is that you can simply ignore error 103 - try wrapping it in {$I-}..{$I+}, supposedly the file will get opened anyway.
