Excel Write Component

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm playing with the Excel Write component. It looks like this thing is supposed to generate an excel document file. I tried it out and cannot find the excel file. Where does this file get saved? Am I missing something?

The Excel Write comp puts out an output of type FileDataType onto the stream. You can get write it to the filesystem using a Write File component (using the Excel Write output as input for this comp).

Got this working in Debug, but when I publish the workflow and try it, it times-out. The log viewer says that it doesn't have access to my desktop. Is this an IIS thing or something?

It probably is... the app pool that your published project runs under more than likely doesn't have acces to the desktop. You can try changing the user the app pool runs under in IIS... if it works under debug, change the user to the current logged in user.
