Move _ts4tmp.asp to %appdata%

When editing classic ASP files, a _ts4tmp.asp file appears in the same folder as the edited file. This can be a nusiance because it can be inadvertently copied in file sync operations and the like. Surely the most appropriate place for this is in the user's temp folder or %appdata% somewhere.

_ts4tmp.xxx is a temporary file that is written out every time the internal preview needs to update (the update frequency of internal preview is controlled here: Options (F8) > Preview > Auto Update - but that is another story)

if we would write out _ts4tmp.xxx to any location other than were the original document is, then external links (including images) would not work (not show up). that is why we cannot write _ts4tmp.xxx to %appdata% or elsewhere.

Hi Stefan

Could it be a hidden file?

No problem. I'll add this to my list of things to do.
