Is there a way to return the local computer's Windows temp directory besides GetTempPathA (which has been given me the most illogical errors in my code)?  It works and returns the right path, but absolutely makes my code go nuts.

Here it is:

function GetTempPathStr : string;
var
  pTempPath : pchar;
begin
  pTempPath := StrAlloc(MAX_PATH + 1);
  GetTempPath(MAX_PATH+1, pTempPath);
  Result := string(pTempPath)
  StrDispose(pTempPath);
end;


Now just use the function GetTempPathStr whenever you need the Temp path.

Yours,

Alex

Why a B if the routine works fine?
