Unable to detect several intra menu selector in a specific machine, using Default selector. Changing “UI Frameworks” can make it work, but it doesn’t in Studio or Default.
This happens in Ribbons, Menus and other specific Windows elements.
The detection and selectors works fine in 2 other machines with similar configurations.
Windows Server 2016 Standard 64 bit
UiPath Studio 2019.10.5 Enterprise
UiAutomation 2019.11.5 (Started testing with 2018.3.6897)
.NET Framework v4.0.30319
How to reproduce
From Studio, open UiExplorer, choose Indicate Element, tries to select “Move to” button (for example)
The example above is using File Explorer, but it happens in all Windows Applications, including a .NET developed one that I need to automate.
The problem is intermittent, started to happen 2 days with no apparent reason since there’s no relevant Windows Update applied recently:
- Can rewrite all that part using UiAutomation framework, but doesn’t make sense to rebuild everything because 1 out of 3 machines can’t work with it. Also, would be extensive work.
- Tried to apply all the tips and solutions listed here, with no luck: "Indicate Element" by Default, Not working for some applications
- Tried to run with or without admin rights, also no luck
Any suggestions or ideas? Let me know if additional information is needed.
Thanks in advance for all the help.
