Hi Robert,

I was not able to reproduce the error. It works fine on my d: drive. The check,

if (SearchRec.Attr and Attributes) = SearchRec.Attr then

should not affect anything, since it is only validating the results found really have the proper attributes, although it does not have any added value, since FindFirst, FindNext should work properly.

here is the latest code that will be in the next revision:

procedure TThumbnailCreator.AddFile( const FileName : String );

procedure TestFormatAndAdd( const FileName : String;
const Path : String);
if FindDibGraphicClass(FileName) <> nil then
FFileNames.Add(Path + FileName);

SearchRec : TSearchRec;
Attributes : Integer;
Path : String;
Path := ExtractFilePath(FileName);

{ Mar 08, 2003. Also include hidden. }
Attributes := faReadOnly + faArchive + faHidden;

if FindFirst(FileName, Attributes, SearchRec) = 0 then
TestFormatAndAdd(SearchRec.Name, Path);

while FindNext(SearchRec) = 0 do
TestFormatAndAdd(SearchRec.Name, Path);


Best regards,
