Available packages not showing in Studio the first time it is opened after computer shutdown


When Studio is opened after a shutdown or restart, the available activities do not show up as available. All installed packages show up correctly in the manage packages window.

Steps to reproduce:

1st run after starting up the computer, open an existing workflow by either double clicking the .xaml file in file explorer, or choosing a recent .xaml file from the start menu.

Current Behavior:

Only the “Programming” and “Workflow” activities appear in the activities pane. Manage packages window shows the packages are installed as shown in the picture below. The 2nd (or 2+) time studio opens, the available activities show up correctly

Expected Behavior:

Installed packages should show up in available activities the first time Studio is opened

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version:

Enterprise Studio 2017.1.6435
Last stable behavior: N/A
Last stable version: N/A
OS Version:
Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit)
Others if Relevant: (workflow, logs, .net version, service pack, etc): N/A

This issue happens to us also after updating to 2017.1
We have to reopen Studio each time.

We are aware of this issue, we are working on a fix to be released in the near future.
Thank you.

We are also experiencing an issue where the “lines” connecting Flow boxes will change from the side it was connected over to the right side of the box, therefore disorganizing your Flow Chart. I can’t confirm this 100%, but I believe this may be related to the Packages not showing up the first time you open Studio after logging in, because I saw it the first time after I logged in and when I restarted Studio it reverted the lines back to how they were.
