Is it possible to deploy a Mathematica notebook which contains a dynamic URLSave function? My code has the following structure:

web = URLSave["", Close[OpenTemporary[]]]
web = Import[web, {"GZIP", "Text"}]
Dynamic[web, UpdateInterval -> 20, TrackedSymbols -> {}, SynchronousUpdating -> False]

The problem is when I start to deploy it, in the last step after I indicate in which folder to save the CDF file, then this error appears:

Select::normal: Nonatomic expression expected at position 1 in Select[C:\Users\Morry\Dropbox\MEPS\ALISalehi\HTML\146\Untitled.cdf,StringMatchQ[#1,*.png]&].

Due to security reasons it is impossible to write to the filesystem from a web-embedded CDF.

What about WebMathematica? – Morry Aug 4 '13 at 19:12
