I have an Access97 mde file that I distribute as a runtime app. When I install it on a Win98SE box with no Office/Access programs loaded, it runs fine except for the following:

When I run a command that uses TransferText to save the data in a table to a floppy drive in A:, I get the 3051 error (Jet engine cannot open file 'added.txt'. It is already opened exclusively by another user or you need permission to view its data).

However, when I use the same command, but have the text file saved to a directory on the same computer, or on a networked computer, it works.

It also seems to work fine on WinXp boxes, but it's hard to tell because they all have full versions of Office/Access.

This is driving me nuts!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
