I can't get it to work. I've added that line and then I've used the
syntax you posted previously:

\typevimfile[convert=no][copy.tmp]

Returns the error:

File does not exist. (Or more precisely:
[file [ does not exist]
Copy.tmp] )

That works a charm. Thanks you for doing this so quick!

Yep. It's sorted itself out now.
