Can't read pdf

studio

#1

FileNotFoundException: Could not find file ‘C:\Users\Naresh\AppData\Local\UiPath\UiStudio.settings’.

this error occurs every time I use read pdf or read cell activity.


#2

You need to give pdf file path where it stored in your local folder and mention file extension also


#3

Hello!

Please check that the file C:\Users\Naresh\AppData\Local\UiPath\UiStudio.settings exists and/or
reinstall Uipath Studio.

Regards,

I have checked that and yes it does exists and I have also reinstalled the software three times and I have also tried installing the software with the .msi file. Nothing has worked so far I even tried giving the software admin privileges still not working. I have given it .pdf extension as well. Still doesn’t work.


#5

May be your pdf file got corrupted due to any reason that’s why you are not able to read it.


#6

This happens only with the Read PDF Activity?


#7

Have you tried to uninstall or update the UiPath.Excel.Activities and Uipath.PDF.Activities?
Also, please check with other files too, maybe yours got corrupted somehow as @mahima11 mentioned previously.


#8

Yes I have checked for update I have uninstalled excel activities as well as pdf activities and tried re installing them. I have also checked with multiple other pdf files it just doesn’t work on any of the pdf’s I have. So I am pretty sure that the pdf isn’t corrupted. i have also tried other installations of the UI path software.

It also happens with excel. So far I have only checked pdf and excel. I know the issue but whatever I do to solve the issue doesn’t work. The software can’t find the settings file and that generates a file not found exception. However the file does exists and the software has admin permission. The drive isn’t locked or anything.


#10

nothing is wrong with that file. I also checked with other pdf files the issue is still there. nothing comes in the output box.


#11

Try to move the Uipath Settings file to another folder, run Uipath and then move it back to the original folder


#12

Ok. I will try that and see if it works.


#13

no that did not work either. I am attaching the error log file I hope that helps. Studio.html (21.5 KB)
