--- Comment #2 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Somewhat a legacy setting pre Vista, intent being to direct the download to a
directory user has write permission to and will find. Or, failing that to a
common location with write permissions for all users [1][2].

Probably reasonable to make use of the now Windows OS default provision of a
writable %USERPROFILE%/Downloads directory.

The getDesktopDirectory() seems to only be used for the online update, so
should be able to adjust it perhaps to getDownloadsDirectory()

Easy hack?
