I am wondering if I can develop a ac code to download file
from my secure server and run the file into the local PC using
Adobe AIR application with Flex. I have notice there is
FileReference.download() method; however, this method displays the
box to ask the user where to save the file. What i need to do is to
download the file in specific location i would decide the location.
Is there any way i can do this with Actionscript 3.0.

The option you have is to download the file into binary data,
then save the file from the data. This is a very tricky thing to
do, but it is along the same idea as dragging and dropping a
picture; you're able to save data from flex onto the local
