Hi Guys,

I’ve seen the python invoke method demo and it works fine.

I’m now trying to replicate this with my script.

Code is here:

```

And this is my UiPath workflow:

The code works fine if I run the script in a windows shell, but it raises this error with UiPath:

22.4.1+Branch.master.Sha.ae3dd5d96272ef2a8c7136934fe08624b9ad1069

```

```

Don’t know why, could it be because of the import at the beginning of my script?

Someone could help me fix this, please? Thanks a lot
