Changing OASIS Temp Directory

Problem

Some users are not able to open attachments in OASIS or have issues creating PDFs from OASIS (printing to local printer works, but not to PDF).

Solution

  • Create a directory on the c: drive
  • In the Workstation settings, set the "alternate TEMP directory" to the newly created directory
  • Restart OASIS

Example

Begin by opening "My Computer" and selecting the c: drive. Create a directory named "OasisTemp" (best to use one word):


Select "Configuration" then "Software":
soft

Key in "C:\OasisTemp"

Non-Admin Users

For non-admin users or users without access to the Software section of OASIS, changing OASIS temp directory can be done by adding a line to your preferences file.


- Close OASIS completely
- Go to My Computer and open the "C:" drive on your computer. 
- For Windows Vista/7/8/10, the next folder will be "Users". 
- Open the folder of your login name.
- Open the ".oasis" folder.
- Locate and open the "preferences" file. (Use Notepad on Windows)
- Add USE_TEMP_DIR="C:/OasisTemp" to the bottom of the text file.
- Save and close the preferences file.
- Add a new folder to the C: drive named OasisTemp.
- Start OASIS.
