Open Browser Activity fails due to the 8007045a error

Hi everyone,
I’m facing the problem that the Open Browser Activity fail to open a browser window with an error ‘8007045a’.
Can anyone help me fix this problem?

The screenshot of when the problem occurs;

The error message details;
Open Browser: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {EA5E2583-0D30-48BE-9EDB-47B2235ACD10} failed due to the following error: 8007045a A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007045A).

My environment;

  • Studio 2020.10.2 - 10/23/2020
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit
  • .NET Framework Version 4.8

Project Dependencies;

  • “UiPath.Excel.Activities”: “[2.9.3]”,
  • “UiPath.System.Activities”: “[20.10.1]”,
  • “UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities”: “[20.10.6]”

I’ve resolved this issue by myself.
I’ve downgraded the UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities from the v20.10.6 to the v20.4.3, the Open Browser Activity works well.



Happy Automation

Hi all,
I have a good news!
I’ve confirmed that the Open Browser Activity works well with UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities 20.10.7!
