Cannot perform export/download script on the Spotfire Web Server

Hi, I wrote an Iron Python script on my client version of Spotfire to export selected tables and save to excel files to a location of choice (through a pop-up broswer). It works perfectly on the client version of the dashboard. However, when I upload to the Web Server, it gave me an error:

"Could not perform action 'Export'.

Showing a modal dialog box or form when the application is not running in UserInteractive mode is not a valid operation. Specify the ServiceNotification or DefaultDesktopOnly style to display a notification from a service application.

at System.Windows.Forms.CommonDialog.ShowDialog(IWin32Window owner)"

I tried to alter the code to save to a fixed location rather than a pop up browser and it still doesn't work.


I wonder if there is a way to write the script to export and download few tables /visualization from the dashboard on web server to local machine? I hope to download multiple tables at the same time.
