Everytime I leave test server and get back on later, I get an error saying there are extra files in drive:\cpp\bin\eve\memdump.txt.

When I check the file, there is no reported size and it is just a blank file. I have to delete it everytime to get back on test server. This does not happen on live client. Any ideas or fixes for this?

I'm running Vista 64-bit Ultimate. Thanks!

if there is no file size,
More that likely its creating it before it needs to use it.
ie when game does crash it ready to dump data too

IS there a way I could make a batchfile or task to auto remove the file when I run eve?

EDIT > It creates the file exit of game.

Open Notepad

Write:

@ECHO OFF

cd C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\bin
del memdump.txt
cd ..
start eve.exe

Save as "EVE.BAT" to desktop, or wherever - use it as your EVE shortcut.

Note: replace "C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\bin" with your bin folder directory.

I tried that and keeps erroring out saying "CAnnot Find C:\Users\User\Desktop\memdump.txt"

This is how my file looks:

@ECHO OFF

cd D:\CCP\EVE\bin
del memdump.txt
cd..
start eve.exe /server:87.237.38.50

Ideas?
EDIT > I tried this command prompt. It won't let me change drive letter to d:\.
EDIT > I moved my sisi copy back to drive c. Batch program works like a charm now. Thanks!

Doh, didn't think about if the user had it on a different drive!
This should fix it:

@ECHO OFF

cd D:
cd D:\CCP\EVE\bin
del memdump.txt
cd..
start eve.exe /server:87.237.38.50

Is there actually a fix for this? It makes relogging into EVE really annoying.

If you guys are getting this, run a log server and bugreport it. It's most likely a bug with the client.

From this thread

Open the properties of your eve shortcut and ensure that it points to
"C:\Program Files (x86)\CCP\EVE\" (or whatever the root directory of your eve installation is) in the TARGET field.

memdump.txt is now created in the game root and eve starts regularly.

We are aware of this and working on a fix.
