The number 1 Google return for vbs was "Vacation Bible School." So, if I were you, I'd ask a nun or something.

(You realize this is an autoit forum, right?)

Try using the system environment variable %Temp%.


"So man has sown the wind and reaped the world. Perhaps in the next few hours there will no remembrance of the past and no hope for the future that might have been." & _"All the works of man will be consumed in the great fire after which he was created." & _"And if there is a future for man, insensitive as he is, proud and defiant in his pursuit of power, let him resolve to live it lovingly, for he knows well how to do so." & _"Then he may say once more, 'Truly the light is sweet, and what a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to see the sun.'" - The Day the Earth Caught Fire

Dim fso, tempfile
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Function CreateTempFile 
   Dim tfolder, tname, tfile
   Const TemporaryFolder = 2
   Set tfolder = fso.GetSpecialFolder(TemporaryFolder)
   tname = fso.GetTempName   
   Set tfile = tfolder.CreateTextFile(tname)
   Set CreateTempFile = tfile
End Function

Set tempfile = CreateTempFile
tempfile.WriteLine "Hello World"
tempfile.Close

TemporaryFolder is a VBS Constant similar to @TempDir, but you need to use .GetSpecialFolder() with the constant.
