GetAttr on pagefile.sys...Invalid Procedure Call or Argument????

I am using VB 6 on an NT Workstation.
Here is the line of code:

lNameAttribute = GetAttr(vcPath & cName) Or viIgnoreAttributes

-  lNameAttribute is a long
-  vcPath & cName = "d:\pagefile.sys"
-  pagefile.sys has the archive attribute set.

It raises the

run time error 5:  Invalid Procedure Call or Argument

error on the GetAttr(vcPath & cName).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
