2:: fix_logfile_path.cmd
3::
4:: This is a simple (and/or stupid) script whose sole purpose is to set the
5:: correct path for wrapper.logfile, by explicitly setting it to use the
6:: environment variable %temp%.
7::
8:: On every *NIX-like system, $SYSTEM_java_io_tmpdir/wrapper.log points to a system-level
9:: temp directory (/tmp on Linux, /var/tmp on BSD, etc.), but in Windows the value of %temp%
10:: depends on whose account a process is running under. If the same user that installs I2P
11:: is the only one that will run I2P, this isn't a problem.
12::
13:: The problem comes from trying to run the process as a service, or trying to run under an
14:: account other than the one that did the installation. For example if the user "Administrator"
15:: installed I2P on Windows 7, the value for wrapper.logfile will be set to the hardcoded value of
16:: C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\wrapper.log (if it's left at the default value of
17:: $SYSTEM_java_io_tmpdir/wrapper.log.
18::
19:: If user Alice tries to run I2P, the wrapper will try to write its logfile to
20:: C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\wrapper.log. Unfortunately Alice
21:: doesn't have the rights to access Administrator's temp directory. The same
22:: will happen with the "limited access account" that the I2P service runs
23:: under.
24::
25:: Since Windows doesn't have sed and it has a retarded find, we resort to this
26:: lameness.
