    local files

      Pretty basic question, it seems like Air should be able to do this but I want to make 100% sure.

       

      Can an Air application write a simple text file to the local drive outside of its sandbox , say to the user's desktop, without any user activity?

       

      So if I wanted to store a simple text file outputting some test results to the user's desktop, without the user actually hitting a button and saving it himself, can Air do that?

       

      If that isn't possible, can I write an external application (C# or C++) to read/write a text file inside the Air sandbox?  I have been reading about the sandbox and I am pretty confused as to whether any of this is actually possible.

       

      Thanks
