Get Visible Text IE vs EDGE

I have began process rebuilding our processes from IE to EDGE.I used “Get Visible text” with IE very often, but with Edge didn’t work. I have error bellow:

Message: Capture error.

Exception Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

RemoteException wrapping System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Capture error.
at UiPath.Core.Activities.ObsoleteTaskAsyncCodeActivity`1.EndExecute(AsyncCodeActivityContext context, IAsyncResult result)

at System.Activities.AsyncCodeActivity.CompleteAsyncCodeActivityData.CompleteAsyncCodeActivityWorkItem.Execute(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager)

HI have you try re - indicate the text?

Yes, there is new correct selector for EDGE. Highlights works correctly but during process running I have this error. I tried change WaitingForReady but without success.

Hi @Brano,

Chrome is best suited for automations any specific reason to work with IE/Edge. Also try using Get Text instead of get visible text.


Hi @Brano

Try upgrading or downgrading the Ui automation packages from manage packages!



OK, I can use only IE or EDGE. Get full text works good but the reason why I use Get visible text is because the data in background are changing and the function get full text can took the older data and not the new data which are shown in form.

This is my actual version.

Hi @Brano

Try Upgrading to latest version!


Hi @pravin_calvin ,

try upgrading what? My studio version is 2021.4.4 and UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities 21.10.3 and looks as last possible?

Hi @Brano

UiAutomation package from manage packages!


Hi @pravin_calvin ,

how you can see on picture, it isn’t possible.

Hi @Brano

Its a community or enterprise edition of studio?

In Community edition its showing as version below!

Thank you,

for thread, if it’s problem reported 04/2021 what it is solution? I can expect some fix for package or something?

This is bug, without solution for classic design, there is solution only in modern design.
