Currently evaluating UiPath for some projects coming up in 2017. I’ve gone through some of the documentation and I’m still unclear on a couple of things.
1 - Launching applications. I’m trying to configure it to open Chrome and then use that window to go to a URL. I used the Launch Application step followed by Type Into. It seems logically like it will work but then I get an error:
Main has thrown an exception. Message: Selector not found. Source: Open application 'chrome.exe Selector's Exception Type: COMException
It seems like there’s an issue with the ID of Chrome in the selector, but as I’m just evaluating the software right now I haven’t dove too deep into the selectors. The documentation I’ve seen focuses on applications like Notepad. I’m wondering if anyone has an example of launching a browser(Chrome or Firefox) and then actually performing tasks in it, so that I can compare and see what I’m doing wrong.
2 - Much shorter question. We use Postgres for our databases. Does UiPath support this? I haven’t come across documentation on how to interface UiPath with a PG database or if it’s even possible.
Thanks for any help. Normally I would try to research this a little more on my own, but at this time we’re just evaluating the software so I’m trying to minimize the amount of time I spend researching issues and spend more time seeing if UiPath fits our needs.
