    Is it possible to manipulate client computer's direcotries through an
    ASP.NET page?

    For example: user click "Down Load Package To Temporary Directory", then a
    whole package with proper directory structure will be downloaded to client
    computer's c:\temp directory.

    Thanks,
    Guogang

    You cannot control WHERE a file downloads,
    but you can certainly ALLOW the download of a file...
