I am using the code below to try and load a filepath to a bmp file from a txt file. It compiles fine but when I get to the LoadFromFile stmt I get a runtime error "EFOpenError Cannot open file" and then it displays the path it should open so it is reading it correctly. I am using Borland C++ Builder.  

Can anyone tell me where I have gone wrong please


ifstream in ("Test.txt");    
char s[_MAX_PATH];

if( ! in )
{
  Application->MessageBox("Cannot open file.",
   "MessageBox",MB_OK + MB_DEFBUTTON1);
}
else
{
  Graphics::TBitmap *Bitmap1 = new Graphics::TBitmap();
  in.getline(s,_MAX_PATH);
  Bitmap1->LoadFromFile(s);
  Image1->Picture->Bitmap = Bitmap1;
}
in.close();

Maybe, s contains some spaces before or (after)image file. For example,  s = "   c:\x.bmp" is wrong filename

For sure, the filename is correct, you can use access(...) . The following is demo code

    ifstream in ("Test.txt");
    char s[_MAX_PATH];

    if( ! in )
    {
        Application->MessageBox("Cannot open file.",
            "MessageBox",MB_OK + MB_DEFBUTTON1);
    }
    else
    {
        Graphics::TBitmap *Bitmap1 = new Graphics::TBitmap();
        in.getline(s,_MAX_PATH);
        if( access(s,0) != 0 )
        {
            String msg = String("\"") + s + "\"";
            Application->MessageBox("Cannot open image.",
                msg.c_str(),MB_OK );
            return;
        }

        Bitmap1->LoadFromFile(s);
        Image1->Picture->Bitmap = Bitmap1;
    }
    in.close();
