Based on your test it looks like the comment about "vanilla characters" is
probably correct.  It works when using a string with no spaces for the
directory.  When you setup your string you used   put "C:\Documents and
Settings\zhangt\Desktop\imgFolder" into k

For the real directory you wish to use change it to this.
  put quote & "C:\Documents and Settings\zhangt\Desktop\directory with
spaces\ another with spaces" & quote into k
