I'm not sure why it works on Windows either, because it looks to me like 
you are specifying a file path rather than a folder location for the 
place to copy the file to. I think the script should be using "answer 
folder" rather than "ask file", right?

If you want to put content into a new file with a pre-determined file 
name and path, then use the "url" keyword to put data into a url on 
disk, or else use the "open file", "write to file" and "close file" 
commands to create a new file with data in it.
