Where has the download Access Runtime file gone

I have a client who downloaded the Access Runtime 2010 file from the MS Site and now cannot find the file, he has apparently searched under the downloads and says he didnt specify a directory.  I know that sounds silly but I cant think where to tell him to look.  I cant get into his computer at the moment and just need suggestions as he doesnt want to download it again (it is a very big file), any help would be appreciated.

If your client is using Firefox, Chrome, or IE -- hit "ctrl-j" to bring up the downloads.  Chrome has a link below each file to show the folder that contains it, while FF/IE require you to right click on the file in the downloads window, then show the containing folder.

If for some reason the file isn't shown in the downloaded files list, I recommend downloading another (smaller) file and following the above instructions to see where the browser saved it.

If your client used the "save" button when downloading the file, I believe it defaults to whatever folder was used for the previous download.

Your client may be able to determine what that folder was by returning to the download site:
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=10910

Have your client click the download button and then the "Save" option again -- doing this alone will *not*  actually download the file, but it will pop up a dialog box showing where the file will be stored (I'm describing functionality as I see it under Windows XP Pro).

If your client has no office 2010 installed.
Check the run time as access.exe in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

If access 2010 is installed, runtime is accessed through the main access program with the runtime option.
