one question. What is expected with:
Const LISTFILE = "G:\MyFiles\filelist.txt"

If it's what I think it is, we cannot create a list ahead of time for
what should be on the list that the CD should have. We only know that
we've dropped files in a directory structure and the CD build needs
to have them. With one product, it may be 12 files in three
directories, in another, it may be 60 files in seven directories. It
sounds strange, but we don't have a predefined list of files, we just
want the CD to have the same files as in out network directory

OTOH, If I misunderstand, let me know.
