I have an application that about 50 people are executing on their PC.   When the user saves in thier application, I need to update information in another application supported by a 3rd party.     To do this, they (the 3rd party) want me to write a file to a common drive on our server so they can pick it up and update their information.    My application doesn't provide a way for me to make the file name unique, so I need some type of executable I can run to move it from the user's harddrive to the server.    does that make sense?
