Is there a way to convince the spooler to use another folder than c:\windows\spool?
How can I move c:\windows\temp? In 3.1 I could SET TEMP, but in 95?

griessh...

Unfortunately the spool directory go side by side with windows directory.  The only way to move your spool directory is to INSTALL windows on your D drive instead.  Believe it or not but this information is coming from MS database.

So it is THEIR recommendations.
Hope this answered you.

Sorry... but just the same second as i read your original answer , a user came in with a computer that had been drenched in coffee (or something), he was noticably upset when we COULDNT fix it in "three seconds or less" and said "i would like to get a second opinion on this" ... Wonder if he realizes that we are the only Support staff on the company?? :=)

I know what you mean.  We are looked at, as Magicians not humans.
But that's what we like, right??

Thanks Werner...
But as we say : " In life you can't have it all "
Just think of what you could do today in comparaison of how it could have been done a few years ago??
Specially for us "Designers", what a difference.
Best of luck.
