Remarks

Temporary directory

If the temporary directory supported by the system does not exist on the current computer, fTempPath returns:
  • in Windows 98 or Me: the current directory on the computer.
  • in Windows 2000, NT or CE: the name of the default temporary directory supported by the system. No test is run regarding the existence of the temporary directory.
Caution: In Windows Vista and later (when the UAC system is enabled), the temporary directory used depends on whether the administrator privileges have been granted to the user or not.
