The SHGetKnownFolderPath API function is supported since Vista,
though. The politically correct way on Windows would probably be to
try to call that with FOLDERID_Downloads, although since Windows 7
Microsoft dropped the dubious practice of localizing directory names
on the file system, replacing it with the equally dubious practice of
replacing actual directory names with localized strings in the shell
UI instead.
