in thread [solved] File::Spec tmpdir() is behaving wrongly in Windows7

Hi sundialsvc4

To avoid confusion, I set the environment variable SET TMPDIR=C:\Temp and then ran the perl code. Still I get the wrong results.
C:\Temp is avilable with full permission to all users.
I have created perlApp (Active State based) exe and executed in other machines, I face the same isse with File::Spec.
What I understand with all the monks post is, it is File::Spec issue. I will reinstall perl freshly and try again.



Thanks & Regards,

    Hi sundialsvc4

    Great. Thanks for your support. Issue is solved. Looks like my C:\Temp was created by system, though it exists with write permission some how perl is not getting permission to work in it. So I have set Temp dir in my local account like below,

    C:\> SET TMPDIR=C:\Users\bakki\AppData\Local\Temp C:\> perl -MFile::Spec -e "print File::Spec->tmpdir();" C:\Users\bakki\AppData\Local\Temp

    Now everything work. Actually, it the default Temp set by windows for every user, I have modified it to point to System temp which is wrong.

    Thanks & Regards,
