How to Run Without opening the windows server

HI Team,
We are trying an UI automation in the application running in jre in IE. We are able to run the robot while the screen opens in the windows server.
But our requirement is to start the robot and then minimize the window (But Robot has to execute the task). But if we minimize the window, then stops in error(Error stating selector not found).If i use simulate click or simulate window messages then the normal application is also not running states it is not supported. could you please help me to identify the way to find the solution.

Hi @gokul.ragul24

Welcome to our UiPath Forum! :slight_smile:

This might be tricky, as it slightly depends on the application you are automating. Some of the older ones will indeed not support the Simulate Click property.

One more thing to check would be to try the SendWindowsMessage property (which is slightly more permissive and still works in background).

See here for more info:

Thanks for your reply.In my case both simulate click and send windows message is not working.

But i resolved it by adding the below property in the machine from which windows server is connected.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client (32 bit)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client (64 bit)

This will help me to run in windows server with the server minimized, so it wont occupy our screen.

For more info,
