Accessing Windoze Files ( Newby Question)

 Accessing Windoze Files ( Newby Question)

The following button action code displays the absolute in a message
bopx, then reads a line-o-text from a file, then chages button caption
to the line-o-text:

dim f as FolderItem
dim g as TextInputStream

f = GetFolderItem("")

msgbox "opening " + f.AbsolutePath + "A.B"

g = GetFolderItem(f.AbsolutePath+"A.B").openAsTextFile

PushButton3.caption = g.ReadLine

The absolute path appears correct for both Mac and PC, but  I always get
the NilObject Exception of death when run on Windoze 95 (meaning Windoze
can't find the file???).

Any suggestions of what the problem may be?
