Hello all:

What is the best code to use to download a text file automatically to a client computer’s hard drive when that computer visits my website - like a cookie. Can I also have the text file download to a specific location folder on the client computer’s C: drive?

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Brian

Sure, if you feel like exploiting one of the many IE security holes. Otherwise, no, nor should you.

What possible legitimate reason could you have for this?


If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.

The original (double) poster was probably trying to “legitimately” learn how to give someone a virus, or something like that.

You have to laugh, don’t you?

You can go here for software to do that. It will automatically download a text file and place it in a very specific location on the C: drive.

Thanks for the good advice…I assure you that my intentions are honorable and I want to use sound code, not exploit any IE flaws that can get patched up or fixed with the next version of the browser and break my code.

Thanks again!
