Could also be the VB code or run statement is being truncated. How are you
escaping out your double quotes in VB.
E.g. if you copy the files to root of C and then try it does it work?
Hope that helps,

The redirect may not work when running it from Run... or exec inside a
program. This sort of argues for a -f option to write out to file without
needing a stdout redirect.
