The game crashes when tried to download update

Posted by Pon27
First of all, thanks for making GMS, it's the best extension in the world.
Second of all: I tried making an updater, I followed your updating tutorial and everything should work, but when it starts downloading the update, the game freezes forever instantly :·(, (yes I'm testing it in an executable, and yes, the version on the game page settings is higher than the one on the executable) the link is a direct dropbox link that should work, I'm using windows XP (sorry), and using the "GameMaker server+" extension package, I'm using GM 8.0 pro.
Thanks in advance.

If the link is https, the download will not work. You'll need a HTTP link. (you might need to use a different site for that)

Thanks! it is indeed a silly https link, do you know of any site with direct download and no S after http?

I'm sorry, I'm not aware of any sites that are also available in English.

Do you know any in any language? (except dead languages)

I'm using airload.nl, but it seems like they don't accept new users anymore.
