Activate window not working


I’ve made a UiPath sequence that allows me to connect to zoom meeting automatically. This script works perfectly, however only if I put my mouse on notification area this script fails. Even if I try to bring zoom window foreground, it doesn’t work (Refer to below video).

Window Activate Failed, UiPath

I’ve attached the file below, if someone is interested. (3.0 MB)

I’d really appreciate if someone can help me out on this.

Hi @Dust_2_Dust,
Have you tried to debug process and see what kind of an issue is listed there?
It might be anything - wrong selector, wrong property etc.

Thank you for your reply. Yes I’ve there is nothing wrong with the selector. You can refer to following video, Zoom Automation. The issue is, when I click notification area and put my mouse there, my mouse can’t find zoom window even if I try to activate it using powershell script like, nircmd win activate class ZPPTMainFrmWndClassEx. But as soon as I leave my mouse from notification window UiPath can find zoom window.

It might be rather something related to Zoom itself like it’s protecting from being grabbed or something. What about trying ocr/image recognition activities?

Thank you for your reply. Every other option is working just fine.
