[BioC] Question about VennDiagram package

Hello all  --

I have successfully used the VennDiagram Package several times to make quite attractive (at least in my opinion) VennDiagrams.  Now, I am trying to make new VennDiagrams with new data (on an updated version of R) and am having an issue. I can't find the output file (i.e., the "VennDiagram").  In the past, the file has been written to the working directory, but they are not there.  I have searched everywhere I can think to look (home directory, the entire computer) and no luck.  

I have attached the code from the example from the paper, as this code also produces no find-able file.  Has anyone been able to successfully produce VennDiagrams (that they can find) using VennDiagram in R 2.15.2? Also, I am implementing this in RStudio, but have also had the same problem from the old R console.   Any advice?
