XML and javascript

When I try to save a
file on my machine using the Javascript inside my .aspx file. Like

var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var a = fso.CreateTextFile("testfile222.xml", true);

It gives me error on the first line saying that: "Microsoft JScript
runtime error: Automation server can't create object".

I guess it has to do something with creation of automation objects in
Javascript while the script is running on IIS server.

nowadays, the security of MSIE is tighter that in most cases, the above code will no longer work unless you change the security settings.

The error is indicating that the COM object "Scripting.FileSystemObject" could not be instantiated. This might be a result of 2 things:

1. Security (Most Likely)
2. Absence of the COM dll (which I doubt).
