Parameterizing the working Directory is not working

Hi,

I am trying to parameterize the working directory in"Open Application" activity, however it’s not working. Not sure what is going wrong.

anyone faced the similar situation and what is the work around.

Hi @niranjan79

Welcome to the UiPath Community!

What are you trying to open and what parameters are you passing can you show that?

Thanks,

I am opening a specified folder, which can be recorded as a parameter. For testing created a variable and recorded the value but the activity doesn’t pick the value.

Okay see this thread

I have already referred to that post as well, but the my situation is quite different. If you see my image i am opening “Acrobat reader”, which eventually has some other folder path (When you click the Open sub menu under FIle menu) and i would expect the acrobat to set the default folder to the path which i have specified in “working directory” of properties panel.

I have figured out a workaround but wondering if the issue could be resolved in a better way.
