Impossible to work on Windows during Robot execution


I’ve a problem when executing treatment with UiPath.
The robot is executed on a Virtual Machine, and I have my own independant VM on the same computer.
Nevertheless, when I start the robot treatment and go back to my own VM, the robot looses focus and stops.

I’d like to be able to work while robot is executing.

Could you help me please?

I have had this issue once or twice, and found that as soon as you click run, if you click on your other desktop quickly before the bot tries to do its own clicking/typing then you should be okay.

Let me know if you’re still having issues.


This happens when bot is trying to click and at the same time you are try to take out the focus, in the very starting of your workflow just give 5-10sec of delay and before that time you can take the focus to your local VM and then bot in Other VM will not affect.
