    Environment Manager maintains a number of session variables. These are detailed in the Product Guides for each version of Environment Manager. However, in order to provide persistence of these variables between executables a file-based cache is used on a per-user basis. By default this cache will be created with the name format EMValueStore_<User SID>_<Session Id>.dat in the %TEMP% location. Since this variable defaults to C:\Windows\Temp this can present issues when restricting permissions to temporary locations. The

    engineering setting allows you to control where this cache is held.


    This value should be created as follows:

    Registry Key: HKLM\Software\AppSense\Environment Manager\
    Value Name: ValueStorePath
    Value Type: REG_SZ
    Value Data: Path to the folder that should house the session variable cache.

    CAUTION: The path to the folder needs to be literal. Environment variables cannot be used to set this path.
