Thanks for responding! Really appreciate it. =)

No, the program is very "regular", no advanced or non-common programming 
practices are used.
I have no idea why it isn't working. The only thing I can think of is 
that it might involve the .ocx control called Comdlg32.ocx, which is 
used to bring up the open file dialog. However, the open file dialog is 
working until the user has selected a robot and clicks open.
