Application Element Error "Cannot access target process elevated privileges might be required. Try running the UiPath application as an administrator"

Fix for the error received while inspecting the application element "cannot access target process elevated privileges might be required. Try running the UiPath application as an administrator."

Error:




Resolution: The issue appears due to lack of privileges. Note that it is an expected behavior to not allow the Robot to run as an administrator when triggered from the Orchestrator considering the implications that it carry for an enterprise organization.
  • For example: The Orchestrator user who access to trigger a job (assuming that will trigger a Robot in admin mode) can make an automation on the machine to modify the registries, windows settings or other key configurations in the machine, etc..,
The cause of the issue is due to the target application where an automating needs an higher privilege to interact with it.

The solution for this would be to
  • Run the target application in an non-elevated mode or low Integrity level after which the UiPath Robot will be able to identify the application elements.
