Finding the Temp Directory and Getting Temporary Filenames in VB.NET and C#

In a previous post, I showed how to get special directories like My Document and System32, but I also need to get the location of the Windows Temp directory and this is not covered by the SpecialFolders property (see previous post for more info on it).

Getting the Temp folder is just as simple, but it is done with a different property:

tempPath = System.IO.Path.GetTempPath

You can also generate temp filenames with:
tempFilename = System.IO.Path.GetTempFileName
