Q: Why does the Upload Wizard window stay open after clicking ‘Upload Now’?

Q: I got an email saying my file couldn’t be uploaded to Runner. What’s that about?

We’ve been trying to process the file for over 24 hours but to no avail. It’s possible that the file didn’t transfer completely, and if you don’t see a file size next to the file in Runner, you’ll have to re-upload the file again. Otherwise, the file is in our repository, but something didn’t complete as part of the upload process. Contact the Runner team and we can look into this for you.
