How do you download a file from DropBox and have it land on your desktop from within a FileMaker solution?

We have a zipped FileMaker file stored in DropBox which is an Updater for our solution and are trying to automate the updating process. To do this, we need to download the zip file from DropBox and have it ultimately land on the desktop with the click of a Button. We have attempted this using the ‘Insert from URL’ script step to download the file into a Container Field and then ‘Export Field Contents’ from the Container Field onto the desktop. The file appears to download and land on the desktop. However, when the zip file is attempted to be unzipped, the file remains zipped and adds the file extension“.cpgz”.
