I have a web application where users can click on links to view pdf, word and excel files. This part is working

I also have autocad files (.dwg), and even if they have Autocad or GCad viewer on their machine they cannot view the file. (solution welcome, if you know how to view .dwg files with ASP.NET)

As I haven't managed to open directly the .dwg file, I would like the application to download the file onto the client (in the download folder for instance). Is there a way to request permission from the user to write on the folder.
Like when you download a file from the internet, you are asked to give permission on the download folder.

Thank you in advance for your help
