I’m using an Anchor Base activity to cope with shifting columns in a SAP on screen table.
Works fine on a machine with O365 installed and Windows 10.
But fails on a machine with Office 2016 installed. (not sure O 2016 is the culprit, but is a common point of difference)
The column for Gross amount can shift from transaction to transaction. So instead of using a get text with row, column in the selector I used an Anchor Base activity instead.
Which works wonderfully on my laptop.
However, move it into a server environment and it comes back with…
External component has thrown an exception.
An ExceptionDetail, likely created by IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults=true, whose value is:
System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException: External component has thrown an exception.
at UiPath.Core.Activities.AnchorBase.OnFaulted(NativeActivityFaultContext faultContext, Exception propagatedException, ActivityInstance propagatedFrom)
at System.Activities.Runtime.FaultCallbackWrapper.Invoke(NativeActivityFaultContext faultContext, Exception propagatedException, ActivityInstance propagatedFrom)
at System.Activities.Runtime.FaultCallbackWrapper.FaultWorkItem.Execute(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager)
I’ve got plenty on Memory on board.
Google has been unhelpful.
What should I be looking for to explain why there is a difference in behavior between the two?
Currently running Studio v18.4 orchestrator v19.10
Laptop has Windows 10 v 1809
Server has Windows Server 2016 Data Center v 1607
Upgrading Office 2016 not possible due to licensing issues.
I’d be grateful for any help on this.
