This is strange. Of course I checked with open(). First thing I do when I have file problems under Windows. According to this the file was closed. So I think this should count as bug then. I would have had far less trouble to understand the problem, when open returned 'true'. If what you say is true, and I don't doubt it, is there a good reason not fix QTemporaryFile so its open() functions always returns true?
