22.3. Files Created by Autodyn

In Windows, Autodyn will use the user temporary folder for temporary files and log file creation. The local user must have read/write permission to this folder. The location of this folder in Windows 7 systems is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp. On Windows XP systems, the location of the folder is C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp. On Linux, temporary session files and log files are written to the model data folder.
