I am attempting to create a new trace but I get the following error message: "failed to start a new trace".
I have been doing some digging and as I understand it, I had to find the directory Profiler uses for temporary files. So, I typed the following in the command window "SET TMP" and I received the following reply:
Now, according to the forum:
I am supposed to check that the system folder pointed to by the TMP environment variable exists and is not crammed with files.
Well, when I went to the directory C:\Users\Ross\AppData\Local\Temp, it is indeed full of both files and directories. The size is 16.3 MB and has 133 files and 63 folders.
When I had a look at the Environment Variables window and chose TMP the value is "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp" which according to my limited understanding is the equivalent to C:\Users\Ross\AppData\Local\Temp.
So, what I am wondering is am I supposed to totally clear out this directory? I am not too keen on doing this because I don't want to stuff my PC up.
If somebody could help me out I would really appreciate it.
