Hi @kuldip.gohil

It is working with my uipath studio. what version you are using. Due to backward compatibility sometimes you will get this with previous versions i guess but they are working to make mostly things backward compatible. i have raised some concerns which i have faced to them.

for now you can do "first update all packages then you will be able to see this activity?

if not then try this same upload i just opened with my studio and let me know now you are able to see or not?

@aksh1yadav Thanks for your time for looking into this.

My Uipath Version: 2016.2.6165

Getting same error in your script as well.

My packages are updated apart from Excel and Mail activities.

Thanks,

Updated Package & Restarted Studio, still no luck.

Thanks

@aksh1yadav is right. Hope you @kuldip.gohil updated all the package in UIPATH and make sure you do update those package , because of filter option in package you might be missing some package, make sure you update all and restart the uipath .It should work.:+1:

Hi,

  1. Use Take screenshot activity and create output **variable (x)**of type image

2.save image activity (pass varaible x as the input)
