filemode:=0 is okay for DOS programs, but not necessarily so for Win32
programs. I had a similar problem before and filemode:=$40 seemed to cure a
lot of the "access denied" errors I was getting with a filefind utility I
wrote. Perhaps that's the only problem with your program as well.

I wish I could be more help about the rest of the filemode settings for
Win32, but unfortunately I don't recall where I got that info from. Sorry.
