In May 2019 when there was an excel application occurred, UIPath support had advised the following and we did not face this issue until 01/16/2020 when the O365 was upgraded to 16.0.12228.20364 (from 16.0.12228.20332)
Used Read range activity under excel application scope
- Kill the Excel process just before the Excel scope that causes the error
- Adding a delay this error prone Excel scope
Excel activity package version:
Windows version:Windows Server 2016 versio 1607 (OS Build 14393.3384)
Excel version: UIPath .Excel. Activities 2.5.4
Whenever the excel crash error occurs and the job faults, I close the error window and manually execute the job.
