Why does the convert utility give me the error: Invalid parameter when I try to use it with my project

In NT4 there is a utility called Convert that lives in the Winnt\system32 dir and is used to convert 
FAT file systems to NTFS file systems. What is undoubtedly happening is that the NT convert util.
is getting called before the Borland Convert util and therefore not working for what you need.

The best way to alleviate this problem is to rename the convert.exe that lives in the CBuilder/bin
directory to someting else, like dfmconvert.exe and use that instead of convert.
