[Windows] Does not start when %temp% folder is unavailable #9474

qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent v 4.1.2
Windows 7 SP1 x64

What is the problem

Small problem, I doubt anyone else would encounter it but nonetheless there should be some kind or error output here. I found it when I replaced my HDD and tried to start qBittorrent before changing %temp% env variable to new drive letter.
When the %temp% folder does not exist then qBittorrent silently closes on start, without any error or log message. After starting it would appear in process list for a moment and then exit. No error message on screen, in log file or in windows events so there's no indication what happens. Only after tracing the process with procmon I could find the reason for this behavior

What is the expected behavior

Error message on screen or in log file (%localappdata%\qBittorrent\logs\qbittorrent.log)

Steps to reproduce

Set windows environment variable %temp% to non-existing folder or delete existing temp folder.
