what ever you're using, a common method is to package your file into a zip file. for example if I were to download a self extracting zip file, it unpacks into the user's temp folder. Instead of referrencing the temp folder, you can referrence the user's profile folder and unpack to the music subfolder like this:
"%UserProfile%\my documents\my music"
(leave it exactly as %UserProfile% that will force it to reference the current user so you don't have to know the user's username)

the technologies that microsoft office suite and google are using still utilize a client app that specifies the local directory target for downloads. You cannot specify a target folder purely from a website since that would be a security breach (if I were a hacker, I'd use such a capability to force a download to your startup programs folder or start screwing with your system32 folder). The only real way to accomplish what you're asking is to create a client application. The approach I would take from a programming standpoint would be to create the application that can read an info file that I could download from the website (like a torrent file) inside this file would be ftp information that the file would use to automatically download the file (via ftp get commands) and place them in the specified directory.
A competant MFC (visual studio) programmer would be able to design a nice looking client application and someone familiar with maintaining an FTP server would take care of the server side. I recommend you find someone also familiar with certificate services to better handle client authentication so you're not relying on usernames and passwords.
