Some browsers (Chrome in particular, but all of them to some degree) have restrictive policies in place that prevent JavaScript (like the LiveCode engine) from accessing the local file system. There’s no way to work around this - it is a security feature to stop web apps from stealing your data. The HTML5 deployment guide has a section on how to use Python to run a local web server.
