Oddity with Autoit and Win 10

Recommended Posts

Im curious if anyone else is getting this happen

Win 10 Pro fresh install, recent few days ago install of autoit scite and beta, everything a fairly normal pc setup but

I created a second partition on the drive with about 100GB and every time i run a script it adds a tempfile on that drive, sometimes 2

They sometimes turn up on other drives as well


I'm having to go and delete them all after a few hours coding,  everytime i test a script it adds some more...

Anyone have a solution?

What folder are these files being created in?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.  -  ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.  -  Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.  -  _FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file  -  SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editor  -  GUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.  -   Latin Square password generator

Always at the root of which ever drive they appear on and its always when i run a script F5 etc

Very weird

Im trying to narrow down with running a script on each drive separately and see where they turn up

Wrote a useful useless script that took me way too long when you guys could have done this in seconds :) but practice is key.

Sounds like you just need to update your autoit3wrapper but sharing the code for the cause.

#Include <File.au3>
AdlibRegister("CleanTemp", 60000)

While 1

Func CleanTemp()
$aDrives = DriveGetDrive($DT_ALL)

For $i = 1 to $aDrives[0]
    $aFiles = _FileListToArray($aDrives[$i], "*", $FLTA_FILES, True)
If IsArray($aFiles) Then
For $i2 = 1 to UBound($aFiles) -1
    If StringRegExp($aFiles[$i2], "~Co.*\.tmp$") Then FileDelete($aFiles[$i2])
