Error message TEMP-path too long or special char

Error message TEMP-path too long or special char

Hello there,
this is my first attempt to write in a forum like this.
On a different PC I used WSUS offline with great success and I am thrilled about this tool; it was the only tool which solved the problem.

Now I work on my notebook (Samsung Portege z830) and realized, that I installed the user with the name "G&S". This explained the error message (TEMP path). So I changed the user name, not using any spec chars. I changed it in both areas: user accounts and computer administration. After new start: same problem. I looked into this forum and read the suggestion from "aker" to create a new Temp path and include in the list of environment vars. No success.
Then I signed in as a guest and startet the updategenerator - successfully. It downloaded all the update data (took about 25 minutes).
Afterwards I started updateinstaller - and the same error message (TEMP path) shows up. I even created a new user - no success.
By the way - I use release 11.7.2

I am at the end of my latin - so to speak. Could someone please give me a hint - I would really appreciate.
Thank you in advance.

Changing the user name does not help as the user profile folder won't be renamed.

Could you tell me, how you changed the TEMP-path?
I know, that I posted at least two methods of changing the TEMP-path in the forum (the "InitializationHook-method" and the "EnvVar-method").

Please note that no amount of changing the username will actually change the user home directory name. It will always stay at the name it was created with. To get a newly named user directory, you need to create a new user with the desired name, migrate your stuff, and then delete the old user.

Thanks for the quick response!
I created a new folder C:\TEMP and copied all the WSUS files to this path. And I changed the TEMP path in the user environment section to TEMP=C:\TEMP
Did I forget something?

Did you reboot afterwards?

Could you also change TMP?

Thank you - it worked!
I - again - created a new user with admin rights, that solved the problem. Notebook is up to date.
Thanks again!
