HTTPHandler to create, write file and account privileges


I need to use an HTTPHandler to create and write files. I wanted to create
the file in the directory that has this handler, and other handlers. For me,
this directory is: c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\HttpHandlers. I get an error: "Access
to the path "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\HTTPHandlers\bidhero.ccn" is denied."

I can have the code write files to other locations just fine. I'm using
ASP.net v.1.1 on Windows XP, and Windows 2003.

not a temporary file. Once created, it will be there for the length of the

2. I've read several posts regarding this error, and they talk of account
privileges. How do I know which account is running this program, and how do
I change account privileges? How safe is it to change privileges to allow a
process to write?
