Activity Creator with .NET 6 Support is now released

OK, this explain everything. What is your recommendation? To keep the VS 2022 at version 17.3 maximum? I suppose that the UiPath migration to the .Net 7.0 will not be in the near future.

Thank you

Yes, keep VS 2022 at 17.3 in case you still need to use Activity Creator v4.0.

Would you know another workaround to fix the Extension besides downgrading the VS code.

My environment has some limitations regarding downgrading the VS code.


My issue happens even before publishing (and the same after), some dependencies are failing to be retrieved.
When using the latest version of VS code, you faced the same pattern?

Best regards,

I checked internally, and I was able to use Activity Creator v4 in a VS2022 17.4.1 version.

Regarding the missing dependencies, you may add extra feed sources. Check here Windows-legacy to Windows conversion: What about the Visual Studio made packages? - #8 by marian.platonov

In v3 I was able to build a NuGet package directly from publish, but in v4 it generates some dlls in the output folder.
My way of upgrading from legacy 4.6 to the new 6, was to create a new blank project and from there on create everything manually, making sure everything is .net 6 compatible.

My end result is this folder with dlls. How do I get this into a working nupkg?

I have found multiple guides, but none seems to work.
Last one stated the package should look like this:
But when importing it into UiPath, I get the error

Found the issue, I accidentally clicked the upgrade to Activities 6.0.3.
I have recreated the entire package from scratch and didn’t click the upgrade, and now it works!

Hi @mdiv how you recreated the entire package because I am facing the same error in NuGet package while adding the .dll file. Please help me in this.

Hi, I created the package from VS 2022.

As it is a blank project I went to NuGet Package Manager.
It is very important that you don’t upgrade these packages to 6.0.3.

I did that the first time and couldn’t get it to work, when I didn’t upgrade the second time, then it works.

I hope you can get yours to work!

Hi @mdiv Whenever I added any .dll file in NuGet Package it is showing these three errors I don’t know how to handle these errors. Can you please help me in this. Thankyou

Short guide to how I did it:
First create the lib by rightclicking the Package contents

Now rightclick the lib folder

Mark the new folder and click F2 to rename it:

Add your dll file(s) to the folder.
Go to your metadata (CTRL + K) and edit dependencies

Click the add groups, and name the target framework

As soon as you add the DLL file it will be red in health, but for me it still works.
It was a lot easier in the old Creator, that created the nuget package for me :wink:

Hi @mdiv Thankyou it is working fine now.

Hi @mdiv hope you are doing well. I am facing this issue when I am trying to run that custom activity. Can you please help me in this.?

Are you using VS 2022 to create your code? and the newest version of UiPath Activity Creator?
To me it seems like your using the old version since it request version 4.0.0 instead of 6.0.*

When I try to create the project, I get such an error. I tried with two different computers but the result is the same.

Any one found fix? Even I’m facing similar issue. I have tried insatlling Activity Creator v3 and redid all the code work but still I cannot get proper result. I cannot find my nuget package from UiPath Studio after publishing.

Not me. Nothing works as easy as the V3 / Legacy, and all I get is “dead air” from UiPath.

You would think there would be a V5 that works a little better(at all) by now.

What a disappointment. 2 days of trying to follow this simple example

and I cannot get it to work. I am using visual studio community 17.7. I cannot even get the first step done in the tutorial.

I really cannot believe UiPath is not keeping this up to date. I am switching my education to MS Power Automate because it actually works.

I’m using VS 2022 Community 17.6.5 with Activity Creator 4.0 and doesn’t seem to be having these issues. Currently making some updates to a component built using the same extension a few months ago.
