If the command is NOT in the PATH then you have to be in the directory where 
the command 
exists and when you run the command it will drop the downloaded files there.  
When the 
command and dependencies are in the PATH then all I have to do is open a 
Command Prompt, 
type "Y:" and run a FQ WGET command and the file(s) ovtained will be in the 
"Y:" drive.  I 
dion't think the behaviour is any different for Win64 vs. Win32.
