Issue in take a screenshot on VM

Dear All
We are trying to capture a screenshot on VM via orchestrator
We trigger the bot and got error like this
Object reference not set to an instance of an object
And sometimes we get
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The handle is invalid
at System.Drawing.Graphics.CopyFromScreen(Int32 sourceX, Int32 sourceY, Int32 destinationX, Int32 destinationY, Size blockRegionSize, CopyPixelOperation copyPixelOperation)

at System.Drawing.Graphics.CopyFromScreen(Point upperLeftSource, Point upperLeftDestination, Size blockRegionSize, CopyPixelOperation copyPixelOperation)

at UiPath.Vision.UiImage.FromScreenRegion(Rectangle region)
at UiPath.Vision.UiImage…ctor(Rectangle region, Int32 rotationDegree)
at UiPath.Core.Image…ctor(Region screenRegion)

Please give some suggestions…

Could you maybe provide some more information, as per this topic:
Forum FAQ - Information to provide when reporting a bug

First suggestion would be to update all activity packages to their latest versions.

@loginerror please find the atatchment we have updated all actvities still we are facing same issue.UIpathTakeScreenshotIssue.docx (103.9 KB)

Please note we are taking screenshot on virtual machine

Sir is there any update please help us @loginerror

It might be caused by the type of robot service that is used by the Community Edition, see here:

The solution could be to install the Robot as the The SCM-managed Robot service (UiPath.Service.Host.exe) via the MSI installer (it is available for download on your Cloud account).

Just keep in mind that the Studio version which comes with the MSI installer will be the latest Enterprise version and not equal to the current Community Edition (this means that sometimes projects made with latest version will not run on the older version of Robot).

Hello Sir @loginerror we downloaded.msi insatller where we can see that we need a license key for activation is there any way to get license key for trial or how to get it?

@loginerror How can i install on the target machine via the MSI installer Community Edition?

can you please share a url with us?

You should still be able to license your installation with a community license.

@loginerror sir I didn’t get you please can you confirm while I am installing .MSI installer from community edition orchestrator that time there is required licence key from where can I get licence key or is it possible without paid as trail version we can do it please help us we are stuck from long time still we don’t have solution please clear below things

  1. with community edition screen capture automation possible or not on virtual machine?

  2. if yes then please confirm how can we do it ? It will be fruitful for us to understand .

I believe it might not work as expected in some circumstances.

Could you post a screenshot of the splash screen that you see after you run Studio installed via the MSI installer? There should be an option there to allow you to license it with a Community license. This can also be done by connecting your Robot (via the Assistant) to Community Orchestrator.

@loginerror hello sir thanks for update we tried a install a .msi installer from community edition and after connecting machine to orchestrator trying to acquire license from orchestrator with community edition we are getting below error. we are folllowing below steps after installed .msi installer from community edition:

  1. orchestrator is connected to machine with machine key
  2. after that we are trying to start studio getting below error.

Please sir help us
