Element Exist getting stuck



Hi All,

I have come across one issue in my workflow, I’m using element exist with timeout at 3000. It is getting freeze on element exist activity, it will wait for more than a hours, Not even throwing any error, forcefully i have to terminate it every-time.

If anyone has resolution on this, please let me know as well.

Best regards,


Did you try to modifiy the WaitForReady parameter? Maybe there’s some loading issue with the application you’re trying to automate.
Try setting it to None and see if the error still occurs.


Hi @radu_bucur,

Thanks for your response.

I tried all option None, interactive and complete but still didn’t resolved. It is just getting stuck on that particular element for hours. At least it should throw error after 30 second.



Can you tell me how often does this error occur? Is it something that happens every time?
Also, have you tried using something like a FindElement activity to replace the Element Exists that gets stuck?


do create new element exists activity and delete old one
