I have been developing a workflow with the framework on a development server on which I have poweruser rights. All is working fine on the server but after publishing the script to the orchestrator and testing it as an attended robot. I notice it all going sideways.
for example the ‘activate activity’ does not recognise the application it is looking for.
The robot is continuing without the activate step but this causes my workflow to fail on other elements.
another example that I notice not working is interacting with the “IE”- notification bar. (after downloading a file)
I have already tried to work around the issue by clicking on the titlebar.
Opening the browsers via the run command and not via the robot itself. (this helped a bit but returned other issues in the workflow)
and since it’s a very large project/workflow I would love to find the reason why it is not working.
On the client only the robot is installed as a service. (citrix with floating license)
example of a log:
Raw message: Object
message: Activate: Timeout reached.
and after that fails several errors untill he gets an exception ofcourse.
ActivateWindow.xaml (10.3 KB)
I created a small test flow for testing. Even this is not working on the citrix clients.
All help/ideas is welcome. (trying to find the cause and not a workarround as the issue is not only the activate activity)
created another test without IE. Opened calc and notepad and switched with activate. this is working on the citrix client without an issue…
I have very limited access to the explorer settings. but if I compare the settings from the server and the client all looks to be the same. (allow scripting is on)
I also tested a bit with other versions of the UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities. currently working with 2019.2
