I am trying to create a new file inside of the appdata directory, but none of the environmental varibles that I am using with the classpath are working.
I want this program to be runnable on more than just my local machine, so I dont want to hardcode the values in there, which is why I am using these variables.
If I try the command
FileOutputStream outputStream = new FileOutputStream(new File("%HOMEDRIVE%//chromedriver.exe"));
FileOutputStream outputStream = new FileOutputStream(new File("%AppData%\Local\Temp"));
Both of them give the error
%HOMEDRIVE%chromedriver.exe (The system cannot find the path specified)
You could use
Another option, is to use
File.createTempFile(String, String) which will create a temporary file in the system temp directory. If you just want to access an environment variable, you can do that with something like
(if you want to access
%HOMEDRIVE%). Note: On *nix-like systems, the above would access the environment variable
