Files are not downloaded when I run my chromium (CEF) Robot on Roboserver

Question / Problem: 

When I run my chromium (CEF) robot on Roboserver then it is not downloading a file from a Website. There is no error message shown but the file is not created in the folder which was defined in the download dialog.

What can be the problem?

Answer / Solution: 

This issue can happen if the chromium robot finishes to fast before the download is completed.

This problem can be solved by adding a Browse Step to the robot which has enabled the Wait Download Option.

This option is available since Kofax RPA 11.1. In older versions it is needed to put a Guarded Choice Step behind the step which starts the download to delay the completion of the robot until the download is finished.
