Fix to the issue of opening projects / creating new projects / missing Studio settings

Some of you might have been impacted by the latest Studio 20.10 auto upgrade which was announced here: UiPath Community 20.10 Stable Release - Studio

If you encountered the issue like below:

  • error when opening your project
  • error when creating new projects
  • issue with your Studio settings missing

Please follow these steps to fix the issue:

  1. Close your Studio

  2. Navigate to this location:

    %localappdata%\UiPath\app-20.10.0\Profiles
    

    Depending on the channel, either Stable or Preview, the path might be this one:

    %localappdata%\UiPath\app-20.10.0-beta1145\Profiles
    
  3. Now, open the .json file of your current Studio profile (typically Studio Pro) with a Notepad and edit this line like so:
    image

    Thus, set the EnableObjectBrowser as true.

  4. Open Studio and try to open one of your projects.

If it didn’t work just yet, see below for two extra steps:

  1. If your project has the .objects folder, deleting it might help.

  2. If your UiStudio.v2.settings file in this location %appdata%\Uipath contains this entry, make sure it is set to True:

This should fix both the opening of the project error as well as missing settings issue.
Naturally, we will shortly release a fix that will take care of it, but this should get things working in the meantime.
