I set up an application with the following code in the  stack script:

on preOpenStack
   put specialFolderPath("resources")& "/testfolder/" into tURL
   create folder tURL
end preOpenStack

In the script of a button I put the following:

on mouseUp

ask "Write something to go into the resource folder:"

put it into tText

put "file:" & specialFolderPath("resources") & "/testfolder/test.txt" into tURL

put url tURL into tData

put tText & return after tData

put textEncode(tData,"UTF-8") into url tURLanswer url tURL

end mouseUp

I then build a standalone for Mac and started the application. After running 
the script from the button three times I did find the file test.txt in the 
folder named «testfolder» inside the _MacOS folder in the contents folder of 
the app bundle. The file contained the exact three lines I had written. Whether 
or not this will work on windows I don’t know as I do not have any computer 
running Windows to try it on.
