This is a long shot, but has anyone ever experienced any problems with:

put <variable> into URL ("file:"&tFilespec)

On network drives under Windows, specifically where the users entire
"home' drive is a network drive (using Active Directory).

An error occurs ("the result" is coming back non-empty), but I don;t
have the specific error - this occurs at a customer site and this
particular part of the code does not display the Operating System error
in "the result" to the customer

It does not occur every time, but frequently.

This is a standalone built under a pre-LC7 version of Livecode (so
pre-Unicode) so could it be a unicode character in the filespec?
