I try to copy a file using CopyFile function:

Windows.CopyFile(PChar(SourceFile), PChar(TargetFile), True);

The file is copied, but not to a target folder, but to the SourceFile folder. The same is when I try MoveFile().

The folders are specified correctely. I use D6 and WinXP.

Tell us how do you specify the folders and make sure that you use absolute paths ('C:\folder1\folder2\'), not relative ('\folder2').
