I think a push to the user's desktop is going to be somewhat difficult. I can't say I'm an expert at Windows, but in modern Windows OS's, the uesr's desktop is buried in the documents and settings folder, and access to this documents folder is often restricted. For generic access to any desktop on demand, you would have to have 1) all users must use matching profiles for Windows and System i, or 2) use the profile handle api's to acquire a profile that has suffucuent Windows networking access rights.
Must the data be pushed to the user's desktop, or could you build an FTP script in Windows to grab the data to their desktop? This script could be invoked remotely if necessary...
