Zorglubsh Posted August 18, 2008 Share Posted August 18, 2008 Hello everyone and each of you, I am trying to have nlite place the temp files onto my D:\ drive and I would like to make the default path user specific. In the "Options" step of nlite, for the "Temporary Folder" variable, instead of the default "%UserProfile%\Local Settings", I set the following string : "D:\%UserName%\Temporary Files".Apparently, this causes the installation to fail at the end when Windows creates and opens the Administrator's profile for the first time. I get a blue screen and when I check the content of the D:\ drive, I find that the installation indeed created a temporary folder , but did not replace the "%UserName%" variable with the actual User's name, in this case, "Administrator". It simply created a "%UserName%" folder at the root with a "Temporary Files" folder in it. 1) Does one of you see where the problem might come from? Is it a matter of spelling (should I use capital letters for the variables, like %USERNAME%)?2) Has anyone managed to have nlite automatically create such a temp folder on a different partition as the %HomeDrive% - the drive containing the Documents and Settings folder ? 3) Has anyone managed to make it user specific by using environment variables? What if I create a "Temporary Files" folder at the root of the D:\ drive and set user specific folders inside, as in "D:\Temporary Files\%UserName%?Thank you, in advance for your attention and the help you might grant me on this matter.
