Dynare is generating a redundant folder with an arbitrary name, why?

Dear all,

I am trying to run the same model simulation for a group of different parameter values. So, I iterate in MatLab and repeat calling dynare in each iteration.
But, each time Dynare is called a redundant empty folder named “YjLu0asVxy” is generated that prevents the simulation in the next iteration.

I am wondering how to pause dynare from generating those folders. Thanks,

here is the error message

Evaluating expressions…done

Computing dynamic model derivatives (order 3).

before the subsequent calls. This is a problem on Windows we are working on to fix.

Thanks, Johannes, that helps.

I had this problem too, and in my case it was related to Dropbox synching in the background.

Turning off Dropbox synching solved the problem, although this is only a short term fix.
