Things to know

There are a few things to know about this action which we will try and cover here.

Run after Download
This action will only work if the file is an executable. It will download the executable (like an installer) and immediately run it when the download is complete. You can still download all other file types with this action, you just won’t be able to ‘Run after Download’.

Progress Bars
Progress Bars are only available in the Indie or Developer editions of GLCV3.
