-Because the log file isn't created, the session is never established.
-The '!whatever' user has full access to the mentioned directory
-Only happens when the log file path contains a '!'. If the TEMP and TMP environment variables don't contain a '!' the script executes correctly.
-The GUI seems to behave fine
-Changing the settings for the temp file location from within the GUI isn't picked up by the .NET Assembly
I am looking for a fix/workaround that doesn't entail changing the system environment variables/running the app with a different account. Is there a session option for the logs in the .NET assembly that can be set to get around this?
