Hi guys...

I have done a setup capture and an unwanted %TEMP% folder keeps getting created on my desktop...I checked both the files and tables but I don't see it...I know it's not my file which is putting it there...Even the vendor's is not...

How do I remove it?

I'd say the most likely option is that a Custom Action is creating it.

Run the MSI through your authoring tool's debugger, stepping through each CA. As soon as the folder appears, the CA which preceded the highlighted one will be the culprit. If the CA has to execute, then add your own CA near the end of the sequence to remove it. Lastly, compose and send an email to the vendor, asking him if he's heard of the %TEMP% folder and how it should be used.
