    Apps for Office could not use IE Download Manager to download files; so I’m afraid it is impossible to download a file by using Task Pane App. For a workaround, I suggest you to navigate end-user to a download page in IE by using hyperlink and then download files in IE Browser.

    Function window.alert is not supported by current Office JavaScript API. I suggest you to use HTML dialog box instead of Alert.
