Currently we use the %XDG_CACHE_DIR% parameter for this. If not set zim first checks the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Cache". If this key is also not found it falls back to %TMP%.
So instead of overruling %TMP% you can set %XDG_CACHE_DIR% instead. Now the question is if the %TMP% fallback makes sense - looking at other applications maybe it should be in %APPDATA% ? Any standard on the cache location for apps on windows other than that registry key ? -- Jaap On Thu, Apr 3, 2014 at 10:00 PM, Brendan Kidwell <sn...@glump.net> wrote: > Hi all, > > I've been having this problem for a while.
