  • Disk space and temp files for LoadRunner

We are using LoadRunner 12.01 with Windows 2008 Server R2 64-bit.
I have a few load generators that seem to be storing test temp files in very strange places. The location is on the C: drive, when it should be on d:\\temp. This is running my load generators out of space on the C drive quickly. The even stranger thing is where they are being put= C:\\users\\serviceaccountname\\appdata\\local\\temp. Any thoughts or input would be great.

3. ClickStart, right-clickMy Computer, and then clickProperties.
4. In theSystem Propertiesdialog box, click the''Advanced''tab.
5. ClickEnvironment Variables.
6. Repeat the following steps for both the TEMP and the TMP''User variables'':
