The Connect-File method is designed to create files on application server. There is no option to specify a local disk file path (on C: drive). I know this is for security consideration. But we have a use case to exchange data with a legacy thick client application, which only supports passing input params via a locally stored file. The legacy application UI doesn't have field display for some of the input param. So passing the data from UI via RDA will fall short also. Is there a viable way to take data on clipboard and write file to local storage?
This solution should work. There is one drawback though: the use of ActiveX in this solution kind of limits the browser choice to IE; not too many places have/allows IE extension for Chrome. But this is definitely a viable solution in an IE dominant user environment.
