Gallery Workflows with R Creating Temp File wqy-microhei.ttc

Highlighted

Since upgrading Alteryx Server Gallery to 2019.3.2.15763 the temp directory on our C drive (not the gallery settings specified temp drive or folder) has been filled with a 4MB file called wqy-microhei.ttc.

After investigating I've found that Rterm.exe is creating this file and failing to delete it:

Looking at the timestamps I think it's coming from a workflow which updates Alteryx Connect with data from the Gallery. Anybody seen a similar issue?

Hi @craig_bloodworth,

 

Thank you for posting this question.

 

This is a -completely harmless- side effect of a patch introduced with 2019.3 (DE18722 for reference). 

 

Predictive tools now load R library showtext to address an issue impacting Asian characters.

This library depends on sysfonts and showtextdb that will create font file wqy-microhei.ttc in R temporary folder.

 

Hope this answers your question,

 

Best,
