You cannot do that as it would break the security of the client's system.

1 solution

try to download that file using a hyperlink.
suppose you have a file at "\pdf\test.pdf" in this path. then try to download using the hyperlink as shown below

<a href="\pdf\test.pdf" target="_Blank"></a>

i think it will not prompt for the save or run dialog.

if still having problem to understand then post your download file code.
