Got a quick question...and I hope I get a quick answer! :flowers:

I keep getting "can't find (or set-up) temp file." Does anyone know why I'm getting this?

I can't open zipped files, and I'm having problems with my Kodak software, installing SP2, and using Adobe Acrobat Reader. I'm wondering if these are all related to the temp problem.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Click on start, then run, and type cmd and press the ok button. Then type set and press enter.

You should see two variables , temp and tmp. Do those exist when you type set. If so , do those directories actually exist. If they show c:\docume~1 that is really C:\documents and settings. If it shows locals~1 that is actually local settings.

Grinler,

Not sure what you are talking about. When I type set, I get a HUGE list of items....those temp items you metioned are in that list as docume and locals.

Do these directories exist on your hard drive? What does it say the temp and tmp directories are?
