I am trying to attach a supercontainer file to an email

my platform is MacOS, but also it will be done on Windows PC.


my script...


Set Variable [ $baseurl; Value:SCSetBaseURL(PREFS::gDefaultFilePath) ]

Set Variable [ $download; Value:SCDownload(DOCS::SC_cResourceIdentifier; Get(DesktopPath)) ]

Set Variable [ $filepath; Value:"file:" & Get(DesktopPath) & LeftValues(SCGetInfo(DOCS::SC_cResourceIdentifier); 1) ]

(i tried with both the "file:" and without in front)

Send Mail [ Send via E-mail Client; Attachment: “$filepath” ]


I really want the file to download in the temporary folder, but changed to DesktopPath so I could see if the file was downloaded.

The file downloaded on the desktop once, but I could not open it, and it didn't attach to the email.

Otherwise, I see the "Downloading" scroll bar, but the file never appears on the desktop or in the email.


I also tried to see if there was an error by displaying it in a dialog box, but it was blank.


Any help is much appreciated!
