Sets the download folder.

|Path||The native path to the download folder.||$path|
Returns OK on success.
DescriptionSets the download folder.
Make sure the folder is empty as with duplicate file name you get an error.
If you do not set download folder, it goes to default temporary folder.
Version 9.5 or newer check if folder is valid before setting it.
Sadly macOS Catalina may ignore this folder setting and still use temporary folder, so you may need to use Files.MoveFile later to move the file to the place you like.
This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
Download to desktop:
- Version 9.5
- Added check for WebDownloadDelegate.SetFolder to verify path is a valid folder.
