I'm trying to set up an applet on a website which is designed to access the user's local machine, install a windows executable game and run the game, all from the site. I believe this to be possible once the jar package has been certified, but is there any way that local machine disk i/o can be achieved without the use of a signed applet, e.g. while in testing mode
I've embedded the applet using <applet></applet> tags, and that all seems to work ok, and I'm getting stuff appearing on the webpage. However, I can't get it to do very much...
Basically, I'm getting the error
when the applet tries to create temporary folders on the local machine for installation.
