When I use -FileName, I cannot find the output file in the current directory. If I use:

-ps: Start-FileDownload ""
-cmd: dir

Then 'emacs-24.4.1-bin%28i686-pc-mingw32%29.7z' appears in the output of 'dir'.

If I use

-ps: Start-FileDownload "" -FileName "emacs-bin.7z"
-cmd: dir

Then 'emacs-bin.7z' is nowhere to be seen.
