Normally, you have permissions to read from and write to the temp
folder. I prefer to avoid Revolution's specialfolderpath function. It
often gives unreliable or unexpected results. On the Mac, use "/tmp",
on Windows use $TEMP (this variable should be visible in the global
variables pane of the message box).
