Here is the code snippet that i implemented version Q2A 1.6.3

Created a new download.php under qa-include

    error_log("Logged in User " . $userid);    
    if( $userid){
        $file = "dl/".$requestparts[1];
        if (file_exists($file)) {
            header('Content-Description: File Transfer');
            header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
            header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename='.basename($file));
            header('Expires: 0');
            header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate');
            header('Pragma: public');
            header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($file));
    } else {
        $qa_content['error']=qa_insert_login_links(qa_lang_html('question/download_must_login'), qa_request(), isset($followpostid) ? array('follow' => $followpostid) : null);
        return $qa_content;


In the qa-page.php routing add a mapping for download to above file
