Droplets not running any saved action

I have several Photoshop actions created, but when I save a new Droplet to open a file and then run the selected action it does nothing. I have an action to save as PNG and then close the file.

I set the droplet to use my action and save the PNG in a specific folder on the desktop, but the droplet does not run this action, well, any action.

 

I have tried to check/uncheck "Override action "Save as" commands but still do nothing.
I am using CC 20201 with macOS Big Sur

I just tested using Photoshop 21.2.6 and everything works fine, see screenshot below.

 

I have recorded action with single step to save as PNG in specific folder on Desktop, see details how I have created working droplet.

create droplet.jpg

And by the way, droplet should copy action and all steps so you do not need that action in Actions panel. Droplet is running action, one that is copied and travels with droplet not action in your Actions panel as many people believe. Test it, do not believe me, create droplet then save just in case before deleting action from Actions panel. Drag images onto droplet to see if still works (that is how I get conclusion).

I can't make it work. I created a brand new action, then created a new droplet using that action.

Test one: I left the action in the Actions panel, dropped an image into it and did not work.

Test two: I deleted the action from the panel, dropped an image into it and did not work.

 

I might have something broken. Cannot open PS as an Administrator. Don't have such option in MacOs.

I opened the droplet to see its resources and I found it has what I assume is a 32-bit app inside, which is no longer supported in MacOs Big Sur. That might be the issue…
