Hi

A user's PC freezes when he tries to print out a PDF file in Adboe Reader 6.0 because the temp files created in the users temp folder (C:\docs and settings\%username%\Local settings\temp )exceed the size allowed for the user's profile (20mb).  Before we increase the size of the profile via group policy is there any way we can changed the location of the temp files that adobe reader creates?

Set the TMP environment variable to whatever directory has room for the large temporary file.
