Panic: Can't find temp dir for perlapp

Environment

Tableau Server

Resolution

Work with your local IT department or server administrator to ensure that the TEMP directory is available on the computer running Tableau Server.

Cause

Executables generated by PerlApp use the Windows GetTempPath() API to determine the location of the TEMP directory. The TEMP directory has been modified or removed since Tableau Server was installed.
