          You can't do this with Flash on its own. For security reasons Flash is very tight about accessing the local machine.

          There is the SharedObject class which allows Flash to store some data on the users computer, but it is not a text file and the user cannot choose where it goes. It is very similar to the idea of cookies on webpages. Check the help files (if you have Flash 7 or higher) for how to use it.

          There are some third part tools which may allow you to do this. But it depends upon what exactly you are doing.
