I need to write log text files to a fixed location without user interaction.

Can this be done? If i'm not mistaking some versions of UXP did not allow this.

 

thanx

Yes, it is possible; there are two solutions.

 

1. Give file access permission in manifest.json and write the file via UXP

In manifest.json, give file access permissions like this.

  "requiredPermissions": {
    "localFileSystem": "fullAccess"
  },

 

The file path is generated by os.homedir() and path.

fs and localFileSystem are used to write and reference files.

 

 

2. Use doScript and write the file via ExtendScript
