You can probably tell what the problem is by including the special variable $! in the error message.

    Excellent idea. In this particular case, the value of $^E might also be helpful. I suspect that the file is open by a program that isn't sharing write access. See the Win32API::File documentation of the $svShare argument to createFile() for more information on this.

    Right wog!

    Thanks for the tip! It was a permissions problem. Hmmm... I hope I hope I can set the permissions of the file on the NT server using my linux ftp client!
