Installation batch files

Each time I update V17, all appears to go well. The first time TCMD runs, it opens three batch files in my editor, UltraEdit, which has an alias UE. The latest install opened EXE1711.tmp.bat, EXE181B.tmp.bat, and {8D6AF0B5-09CB-4925-9FDA-4FA803CA220F}.bat. The files reside in c:\uses\duke\AppData\Local\Temp.

I suggest checking your .bat extension association. Perhaps you told Windows to open a .bat file with UltraEdit and accidentally left "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" selected?

And for at least 5 days, updating has been leaving 700+ KB files in %TEMP with names like MSI16A0.LOG. It has been leaving the batfiles too.
