Clearing Local Settings/Temp RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that writes to the Profile\Local Settings\Temp folder.  This application places copies of emails, images and files into this directory.  When the application is loaded locally it deletes these files as needed and works fine. 

    Just at a loss here.  I can clear the entire folder with a post run script but that seems a bit invasive.  There maybe things there at the time that should not be deleted.

    Any insight would be great.
    Thanks

  • Hello,

    When sequenced, I suppose it doesn't clear those things out - have you checked with procmon what happens when it tries to clear \temp?

  • Yes that is correct.  It does not delete the temp files.

    I will try procmon to see what happens.  The new version works fine.  This sequence is a few years old using an old sequencer 3.1.  Unless the new version gets the bugs out I should probably resequence with 4.51.

    Thanks Z
