if you are using delphi >= 2007 :

If you use any of the CommonAVI's provided by the TAnimate component in Windows Vista, you must also add the component TShellResources from the Win32 tab of the component palette to your project. Windows Vista no longer contains backwards compatible shell animations, and the TShellResources component adds the following replacement animation resources to your executable:
FindFolder.res
FindFile.res
FindComputer.res
CopyFiles.res
CopyFile.res
RecycleFile.res
EmptyRecycle.res
DeleteFile.res

Hope it helps
