What does your copy of WriteStringToStream() look like? Mine looks like
procedure WriteStringToStream(AStream: TIdStream; const AStr :string);
if AStr = '' then Exit;
LBytes := ToBytes(AStr); // <-- always initialized!!

That's ok. I always meant to eventually post my own TNEF implementation
Seriously, though, not every component in Indy has been updated yet to not
use TIdStreamVCL anymore - and TIdStreamVCL was removed from Indy 10 a long

Do not use TStream directly. Always use TIdStream instead, which maps to
the proper platform-specific Stream class (Tstream for the Win32 VCL).

You cannot instantiate TStream directly, for exactly the reason you have
seen - it is an abstract base class. You must always use a descendant class
