DP2 TEMP Folder Requirements

Kodak Professional Digital Print Production Software

Updated 30 January 2003

NOTE: This applies to Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows NT operating systems only.

If you change the TEMP folder variable in the workstation environment, you must create a new folder and name it TEMP. The system does not automatically create this folder. Failure to do this may result in a DP2 error message about problems creating or repairing the local DP2 database.

When DP2 creates a local database, think of it as a temporary database for the workstation. Even though you may be using Microsoft Database Engine (MSDE) or Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) for your main database manager, each workstation has a smaller, local, and temporary database that uses the Microsoft Jet Database Engine. This error message occurs only on the local database because Jet needs the TEMP folder for the creation process. The message also occurs with a server if you use Jet as the primary database manager and you do not have a TEMP folder on the server.
