Symptoms

When trying to print a file using AutoVue from a Mac OS with Safari 7, 8 or 9, a print dialog will display asking to "Select a temporary directory". This prompt will show up twice and clicking "Ok" on both will let you print the file.

The following error can be found in the Java client log:

JVue: TempFileUtil.isValidDir: rejecting
@ dir=C:\Users\_USERNAME_\AppData\Local\Temp\
JVue: Failed to get temp file for printout
java.lang.NullPointerException
