Thanks for the response, it got me on the right track and I got it working.

Happy to help you!

I originally did try “ instead of ‘ and have the same results.  I was using
‘  because of the example here: http://wiki.freepascal.org/CopyFile

> CopyFile('c:\autoexec.bat','c:\windows\temp\autoexec.bat.backup');

' delimiters are mandatory within this example because we are writing paths
as string parameters directly into the source code.

I believe that I should use both ' and " in case of spaces within paths:

CopyFile('"c:\my silly path\autoexec.bat"','"c:\windows\temp\my silly

or is the CopyFile function smart enough to include delimiters

Best regards,
Sandro Cumerlato
