Hi Palindrome,

Tried same but no luck :frowning:

Can you be more specific as to the error you are receiving and/or how you are running the job? The Exception message or how you are running the job might help identify what the issue really is.

Hi Clayton,

Below error I am getting while running my work flow after lock my windows screen:


Ok, Timeout reached usually means that the element could not be clicked because it wasn’t on the screen or a popup message was in the way of clicking it. What you should do is place a Take Screenshot + Save Image action before the Click, and see what the screen looks like before it errors.
