Well, I did exactly that in the previous generation of my major product... until our customers upgraded to WinNT 5.xx from Win4.9xx and NT4, and started receiving message "Invalid path" and/or "Directory already exists" because Temp dir is Hidden in WinNT 5.xx.

Also, several customers' Sys Admins told me that Temp dirs are cleaned up every once in a while, so placing any permanent files into Temp dirs would be a bad idea, at least with WinNT 5.xx. And you already know the rest of the story.

BTW: placing SHFolder.DLL on that our test NT4 machine did not help either. It reports "SetThreadExecutionState cannot be located in Kernel32" (:<)

Ilya
