Error while opening the Packages manager window

Hello,

I can’t acces to the package manager on my studio. You can see below the window displayed when i click on “manage package”

I already try to uninstall/reinstall the solution, and all the packages files seems to be at the rigth place in my directory, but the same error continue to pop up.

May be there is a way to install the package manually and restart the studio ?

Thanks for your help !

Hi bmuto,

You can try an uninstall again, restart and then delete by hand any left over Uipath folders/files, from ProgramData, your user AppData, Program Files, Temp etc… and try again with the latest available Uipath Studio kit.

Hello,

I’ve just encountered a similar error on 2016.2.6274 version of Studio.
I tried opening the package manager a few times and received this error every time, but after restarting Studio it no longer occurs.
Unfortunately I’m unable to reproduce, but it might help knowing that I’m using a poor Internet connection.

Hi @bmuto,

What installer did you have when that error occured? .exe or .msi?

@ovi - hello I’m doing training and someone has this problem. We used both the .exe and the .msi and still not working. I think there have been multiple versions of the software on the machine. It was working earlier this week but this started happening when the msi installer asked to re-install.

Any ideas?

does that machine has or had any visual studio version installed on it?
check studio logs for this error please : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28339116/not-allowed-to-load-assembly-from-network-location

Hi both,

This has now happened on my machine. I haven’t tried the uninstall yet - I simply went to manage packages (Available) nothing worked initially so I closed the window down. Next time I went to manage packages and this error appeared.

Version 2017.1.6435. I do not have Visual Studio installed on this machine and never have.

Happy for you to log on to my machine if you want to test anything.

RD

we are investigating this issue, if we need more info i will contact you, thank you very much

I have uninstall and install this software again. But still facing the same error as above.

What version are you using exactly? Is it Community?
Whats happening - can you share more details and can we have a fresh Studio log uploaded here to investigate?

I am using Studio 2018.1.4 Community Edition

This appears when opening package manager? Or when trying to install a package?
Can you send studio logs please?

this appears when i click on package manager button

Hi @anujs ,
Can you uninstall and reinstall the CE again. May be it will solve the problem.

Regards
Balamurugan
