    Access the file system to delete a file


      I have created a work-flow in which a user modifies a PDF document and then saves it with a new, automatically generated file name by clicking a button on the cover page of the document. I am able to use the doc.saveAs() method to execute the save.


      Is there a way to delete the old file with JavaScript? I would like to delete the old version of the file immediately after the new version is successfully saved.


      I am fearing that security concerns prompted Adobe to handicap Acrobat JavaScript and prevent full access to the file system.


      Any suggestions?
