Not necessarily - it depends on what build you are using.  It is unlikley unless it has been manually set

Ok. So it mostly works with Windows? (I'm using Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("TMP"); in an aspx page) I try to find a universal method to find the temporaty folder for the user that surf on that page.

If the environment variable $TMP is set, its value should be used as the directory for temporary files. Otherwise the environment variable $HOME probably will be populated. If neither $TMP nor $HOME is set, use the current working directory

Mono supports Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable, you can see this in Mono reference:
http://www.go-mono.com/docs/

I don't know whether Linux has environment variables. If yes, this should work.

Ok. Thanks for the info. I now think it's not a good idea to use this method. Rather try to make something that works on the server instead of on the client.
