Can't see FileListBox contents

I'm moving some programs from Win95 to NT. One problem I am having is that the contents of a FileListBox (source is a directory on another machine) are not showing up in NT - they do show up on the old 95 version. I've tried substituting other directories and they show up, as long as its a short directory name. This makes no sense to me. My path for the FileListBox is like ThePath="\\machineB\c\ArchiveFiles\"
Any ideas?
Thanks,
RickH

Workaround: Use a ListBox to display the files in the directory.
