My (admittedly inelegant/lazy) workaround for this was to redirect all that stuff to the Recycle Bin, via Crafty's logpath command line parameter. Eg:

Code: Select all

crafty tbpath=TB\3-4-5\;TB\tbs logpath=\RECYCLER 
...calls Crafty, sets my tablebase directories up, and shunts all the game.00x and log.00x files over to the Recycle Bin*, where (ostensibly) they're automagically deleted someday. All other options are handled by my crafty.rc file, which is identical to this one.

When Winboarding, variations on the following batch file work fine on my (comparable) system:

Code: Select all

@REM  CraftyVsGnu5.bat
@echo Warning, Microsoft Windows contains products determined by the State
@echo of California to promote cancer, tooth decay, abnormal stress, 
@echo and a variety of STDs.  Use rarely and at your own risk.

start winboard_x.exe -cp -fcp='crafty-21.5-win32.exe tbpath=TB\3-4-5\;TB\tbs logpath=\RECYCLER' -fd='Engines\Crafty215' -scp='GNUChes5 xboard' -sd='Engines\GNU507'

Hope some/any of that helps.
