Try with SendWindowMessage option and check once.

In the SAP logon screen (logging in via SAP logon pad) when entering the SAP user id and password using Type into activity
a. Simulate type – We are getting the error : “Cannot use UI_CONTROL_API on this UI node. Please use UI_HARDWARE_EVENTS method.”
b. Send Windows Messages – No text is being entered even though the bot executes the type in to activity without error
c. Generic (No Simulate type or Send Windows Messages checked) – the bot types a few of the characters with shift key turned on.

We are unable to figure out what is causing these issues. Send Hotkey seems to be working but we don’t know what is causing the above issues
