Hello,

I am receiving this error when I push my automation to a VM via Orchestrator.

Has anyone encountered this issue? Does it have to do with backwards compatibility?

Any and all help is much appreciated.

Here is the log info:

Hello,

There is either missing package or conflcting version in term of version between the version where you developed the package and the Uipath package from the VM where you try to run it.

Please try to instal/reinstall/upgrade excel.activities package

Cheers

Thank you very much!

It was indeed a package that needed to be updated on VM.
