  • Is this within an azure role in the development fabric? Or just a simple winform/wpf application? if the former, you'll have to download it to a local storage location that has been created within the role due to the security inherit in the application. if the later, then its likely just a simple access problem with the user that the code is running under. While the process/application is active, find it in your task manager and make sure that user has permission to write to your desktop.
