The above directory (path below) had grown to nearly 1 GB of data. Within the directory, it appears the application has been producing a pair of files (1 text, 1 CAB) per instance, and this has happened a few times a month since last August (when we launched the VB.NET version of our application). An example of the text file is included below. My first suspicion would be that one of the Microsoft DLLs is doing this logging "for us", but no idea why or how. Any ideas?
Is there something that can be done to prevent the creation of these files?
