TextPipe engine is always writing to an (unwanted) log file

Postby rconn » Tue May 15, 2012 1:30 pm

The TextPipe Engine is creating a log file C:\AEMAIL\DATAMYSTIC.LOG every time it's run. Where is that coming from, and can it be disabled?

I poked around a bit, and found that the "c:\aemail" directory and the "datamystic.log" file were being created at shutdown. Apparently it's in the textpipeengine.dll shutdown code, because I can't do anything to avoid executing that code from my app.

Hi Ron,

It's left-over debug code, and it will be gone for the next release. Let me know (via email) if you need it sooner.

I kludged around it for now by putting a TerminateProcess() at the end of my app so that textpipeengine.dll wouldn't have a chance to run its exit code. I'm unsure that it wont cause a problem if there's any code that textpipeengine.dll *should* be running when it exits, but it does work around the immediate problem.

No, I think you'll be fine using that approach.
