  • Here is an example of how to read a text file that is inside your project:

     //Read a text file in the 'data' folder in the app package.
        //Outputs the contents to the console
        function getDataFromPackage(fileName) {
            var myPackage = Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.current;
            var instLocation = myPackage.installedLocation;
            var path = "data\\" + fileName;
            instLocation.getFileAsync(path)
            .then(function (file) {
                return Windows.Storage.FileIO.readTextAsync(file);
            }).done(function (myText) {
                console.log(myText);
            });
        }

  • Hi,

    You can create file in ApplicationData.LocalFolder or KnownFolders.

    You cannot directly create file in other random folders because of security considerations.
