FileOpen failing on %TEMP%

Recommended Posts

jaja714

Am I missing something?  I have a simple FileOpen statement to create a temporary file in %TEMP% but it fails unless I am running as admin!  In Win7, %TEMP% evaluates to " C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp" ... why in the world would any Win7 user not have access to his own temp directory?

 

$xh = FileOpen('%TEMP%\' & $guid & '.txt', 10)

You da man Jos!  

 

p.s. strange that enabling that is not necessary when running as admin.

It might run due to some sort of default directory requiring elevated rights, but doubt it goes to the directory you want it to go.
