I'm using this library in ASP.NET WebApi and its causing failures.

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'Snappy.NativeProxy' threw an exception. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Windows\TEMP\Snappy.NET-2.10.0.0\snappy32.dll' is denied.

Looking through the code it is due to use of GetTempPath() api in NativeProxy ctor.

protected NativeProxy(string name)
        {
            var assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
            var folder = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath(), "Snappy.NET-" + assembly.GetName().Version.ToString());
            Directory.CreateDirectory(folder);
            var path = Path.Combine(folder, name);
      }
