For years I've been plagued by a folder which appears from time to time when I use the Intel Fortran compiler on Windows. The folder is named Intellicensecache and I've never figured out the conditions under which it appears (though it's obviously something to do with the license for the compiler).
The trouble is that I end up with multiple copies of this folder, all in different places, which pollute my source code tree and sometimes end up getting copied to places where they shouldn't.
Today for the first time I've noticed the appearance of a file named IRMAGENT.LOG which contains a few lines to do with Intel Software Management (I can't remember the exact wording because I'm temporarily off the machine).
Does anyone know how to avoid these folders and files appearing? Are they supposed to be temporary files which are accidentally not being cleaned up for some reason? I wouldn't mind so much if they appeared always in the same place, but as I mentioned they seem to pop up anywhere at random.
