Strange behavior of the "List Folder" vi on an embedded platform



I have an application running on a board with a LPC2378 processor. I use a microSD card for local storage of files. The List Folders vi behaves strangely in my application. I'm using LV2010 SP1 and LV2010 embedded module for ARM microcontrollers.

1. Listing folders or files in the root directory (C:\) causes an error with the code 1. However listing folders or files in a subdirectory works (e.g.. C:\TEST ). Error description for error code 1: "An input parameter is invalid. For example if the input is a path, the path might contain a character not allowed by the OS such as ? or @."

Am I doing something wrong here? Or are there some limitations for the "list folder" vi in an embedded environment?

2. The List Folder vi works differently compared to running on PC. The "filenames" output gives a list of both files and folders, whereas on PC only filenames outputted. The "folder names" output works in the same way as on a PC.

Thanks in advance for any help.
