Win 95 to Win NT conversion problems with VB

I have written VB procedure under WIN 95 which is working perfect, but when I try to run the same procedure under Win NT I get very strange results.

e.g. for "FileCopy source, target" I receive msg "Permission denied" and PC automatically closes all open windows (sometimes it even does a logoff)

When I try to do this Filecopy manually (via DOS Prompt) I have no permission problem ...

Can someone help me ?

Normally, it should work without any problems., but under NT, do you have the permissions to write in the destination directory?
Take the explorer, and show the directory properties, permissions.

Put your code, I will take a look.

Yes I have permission to write in the directory (I am even logged on as an administrator)

Coding : simple filecopy

      FileCopy TempFile, WorkDir & NewName & ".TXT"

All the used variables are filled with correct data gathered before

I found the problem myself.
Sorry, but I did give wrong information.
In fact it is not the Filecopy which is causing the problems,
but a previous Macro in MS Word. How stupid of me !!!

I' ll give the points anyway to Waty for the offered help.
