A couple of (tens of thousands) .gif files

Postby jrg on Fri Apr 11, 2008 8:26 am

Seems like building a web help target creates a tmpxxxx.gif file in the default Windows Temp directory for each icon in the masterpage.

I get 71 .gif files every time I build a Web Help target in C:\Documents and Settings\xxx\Local Settings\Temp. I also had some .png and .tmp files I suspect came from Flare. Took a while to delete over 67,000 files this morning. (Much faster in a DOS window, btw. Old dog, old tricks.)

Anyone else notice this? Is there a way to automatically enforce the removal of these files in Flare?

Yep, I noticed this with v2, I found a similar number of GIFs and about 15 folders with FrameMaker import files.

I installed CCleaner after finding that, purely to tidy up after Flare.
