Calculate Client Security Hash Update Work Items Issue

Hello All,

I am developing “Calculate Client Security Hash” assignment given in the Academy and stuck in updating hashcode after clicking on update work items. The Problem is UiPath explorer is not able to recognize properties of the new window. Can anyone help?

Hi Ankit,

Which version of UiPath Studio are you using? I’m asking because in the latest version 2018.3.x there were some fixed related to selectors and pop-up windows in Internet Explorer. That will help.
Anyway, we can find a solution for you case as well, but, can you please attach some screenshots with the activities/selectors that are failing?


Hello Silviu,

I am currently using 2018.4 Enterprise Edition. However i have got rid of theis issue. The issue was with the selector of the new window. I have added an extra parameter url in the selector and working fine.
Previous Selector -

<html app='chrome.exe' htmlwindowname='WI-Update' title='ACME System 1 - Work Items' />

Working Fine Selector -

<html app='chrome.exe' htmlwindowname='WI-Update' url='*' title='ACME System 1 - Work Items' />

Thank you for your reply. :slight_smile:


Ah, yes, the URL attribute :slight_smile:
There was/still is an issue with the htmlwindowname attribute which is ignored by the robot. That attribute should differentiate between main window and the pop-up window.
That problem was fixed in 2018.3, but only for Internet Explorer, it will be fixed soon also for Chrome and Firefox, I hope.

Hello Silviu,

It is working fine for Chrome as well however i did not try for firefox. :slight_smile:

Thank’s a lot I was stuck with this issue for a week
