C:\Users

isn't a home directory.  Indeed it's not a usual place for a Windows user
to be at all.  If a user is in that sort of place you'd expect them to be 
looking at their own files eg at 

C:\Users\myusername

You've got two complete filenames concatenated there.

The "C:\tst_input.954"  part is not valid on the end of the earlier bit, 
because ":"
is only valid as the second character of a filepath, immediately after a disk 
letter.
