Downloading file to ProgramData directory

    I am a Delphi programmer. I've been running Vista for a few weeks and
    decided to use the ProgramData directory for saving some config files created
    by my application. This place is recommended instead of Program Files
    directories that are protected. My application needs to download a little
    text file from the Internet to check available updates. Seems it is not
    possible to execute this action and download the file to ProgramData
    directory. I've just made some tests and the file can be downloaded to my
    other second HDD without any problems.
    Any solutions and recommendations?
