I think you may not be doing this correctly. (And there isn't a 'chart downloader' per se)
Go to Options/Charts. At the tab 'Chart Files' you will see the charts that are now 'loaded', if any. Click the box 'Add Directory'. Navigate to the folder you want to load such as 'cm93', which you say is under your 'My Documents'. Highlight the folder and click on the box 'Select Folder' (There should not be an option to 'Apply'). This will return you to the Chart Files screen
. At the bottom check the box 'Force Full Database Rebuild' then you check the box 'Apply', which retains this screen after loading or you can check 'OK' which closes this screen after loading.
If the loading fails then you may have a corrupted folder for cm93. PM me if you need to download a fresh copy.
