We are facing some issues with UiPath.UiAutomation packages version. First of all, the context of the platform:
- Studio v18.104.22.168
- Orchestrator v2020.4.1
The difference between version is due to a previous error with java applications and UiExplorer. This previous issue is supposed to be resolve with UiPath.UiAutomation v20.12-preview, the one who needs Studio 20.10 or higher.
We had one Exchange library developed with some extra functionalities, where we use the native activities of UiPath. The library has been working perfectly with previous versions of UiPath but now…
We have recently updated every dependencie to the new ones and the library stop working. You can use it as module, invoking workflow directly with “Invoke Workflow activity” but it doesn’t work when you publish it in orchestrator as library.
In this case, when you try to execute it, an error is raised: “Object reference not set an instant of an object” (Common error when you don’t fill the arguments of the activity or so). I’ve been trying to do a lot of things and finally i can resolve as follows:
- Remove UiPath.UiAutomation package from library
- Republish the library
- Remove UiPath.UiAutomation from Main
As you can supposed, it doesn’t seem an optimal solution (there will be libraries where this package is needed)… Do you ever face to similar issue? Is a known error at this moment? (I have found out nothing related)
Sorry for not attaching the code, but i can’t share it.
Thanks for every comment recieved in advance
