If TEMP doesn't exist: Error 0x8007010b - GetTempFileNameW: Der Verzeichnisname ist ungültig. #24

When i try to start my Single Executable Package on a windows 2008 server i get the error message above.
On my development machine (Win7) it works fine. I get the error right at the start (without showing the installer screen).
I tried with admin privileges and without.

BTW: "Der Verzeichnisname ist ungültig" means something lik "The directory name is invalid"

Any Ideas?


This will need debugging. Run with a log, anything useful above this error?


While rare, I think that if DNI is going to be writing to temp, it should create it if it doesn't exist. Feel free to contribute a fix!
