Hello all & Friedrich,

in my program I have a self-update function built in. The client downloads a ZIP to:


then unzips it. This ZIP contains an EXE, which performs the update itself. It
works fine... here.

My question now is: Do I have to expect that the client machines will be
prohibited to run EXE in C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\ or is it safe to do
the way I described?

Peter Hermanssen has inthe meanwhile mentioned, that some Anti-Virus-programs
might block execution of binaries in that location.

So my question to the jury, would

WE::CSIDL_APPDATA equate(01Ah) ! C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application
Data & \ MyProgram\Update

be a better one?

Thanks for your input!
Wolfgang Orth
