Hi @tuner ,

As a matter of fact, the files are created in the directory in which the .jar is located.

If the application is launched from another application, it may entail the behaviour that you have noticed.

Could you try to correct this issue in your WinAPI call, by specifying the working directory. I am not familiar with WinAPI, but it seems possible ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682425%28v=vs.85%29.aspx )
