It also works for me on Win98,NT,W2K and XP. Only having problems on 
DOS 6.2.2. Unfortunately we are still stuck using DOS 6.2.2 on some 
machines because we have programs that do not work on DOS 7 and up. So 
it would be nice to get this working.

So is there a different COPY command that we could use? I have found 
that XCOPY works but it has an annoying prompt that you have to answer 
telling it whether the file is a file or directory. I can also use TYPE
