If you're trying to do what I think you are, you can't.

Browsers are intentionally designed not to allow a web app to fetch files from the file system.
The <input type="file" ...> tag was specifically stripped of the capability to modify it's value attribute via Javascript to insure that web developers don't try to find loopholes around this.

This is a good thing.
Imagine if any site you went to had the capability to grab files (like you're windows registry) from a hidden iframe without your knowledge.
