Hi @shubhamjn012

Is this xaml file included in your UiPath project solution? Or is it available at the specified location?

It is available at specified location only, at my Desktop.

so is it necessary to keep this ‘xaml’ file in the UIPath project solution, actually I have created this project (PDFReadwithNative.xaml) in separate machine then after development I moved in to another machine, but in new machine it was working fine in 19.7.0 version, but after up-gradation to new version 19.8.0 only it started throwing this error.

what is default path for UIPath Projects ?

Hi @Lahiru.Fernando , please help me here, how can I execute this package by the robot.exe using above code in UIPath 19.8.0 Version. if I need move my code to any specific location then please suggest ?

Hi @Lahiru.Fernando , I got the solution of this Problem, only because of ‘/file’ argument I were getting this error, when I replaced with ‘-file’ then it worked fine [issue with - and / in latest version]. Thank you for your help…
