Got an old customer who is running her business using a custom program that was written years ago. Been recently reinstalled on a Windows 10 computer as the other one died (not sure what was wrong with it) and obviously doesn't run as expected which could be sue to configuration not done on the new computer or just Windows 10 doing things differently.

One of the things that ain't working is printing of labels with barcodes. Got the barcode printing software installed but from what I'm told, part way through using it it would dump 2 files to the Desktop that she would double-click to load in the label software and she could print away.

The files are not being created, I have looked in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore but the directory is completely empty. Programmer doesn't want to know her (neither do I) so isn't providing any details on where things might be.

Anyone have any idea where they might hide? No, I don't know what the files were called, I'm getting a million different names from her and the old husband talking in the background with helpful suggestions, isn't helpful.
