Security restrictions in the Flash Player and browser make this extremely
difficult.

AIR has fewer restrictions, but its goal of cross-platform compatibility makes
OS platform level access very difficult as well.

There are solutions, typically involving trusted applets and the like.

Or a "projector" like "Zinc"
