This morning UiPath updated to 2018.1 automatically, which caused ALL of my old workflows to fail.
The issues is as this:
I have a workflow that opens a IE browser, logs into a system and in the output field of the open browser activity, it sets the browser object to an argument called “browser”…
When i run the flow, the browser opens, logs into the system with the type into and click activities- which is working fine - but when it should pass the browser object to the argument - it fails with following error:
An error has occured
Message: Error getting value from ‘Element’ on ‘UiPath.Core.Browser’.
Exception Type: JsonSerializationException
Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException: Error getting value from ‘Element’ on ‘UiPath.Core.Browser’. —> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Uninitialized UI node.
Now, if i try to REPRODUCE this error from a NEWLY created project(Created with 2018.1) - with the sole purpose of reproducing this error, by duplicating the steps in the original process(Open IE(set output of that activity to an argument as in the original process), type into, click activities) its not failing.
This is an issue for every “project” i have that works with IE and the browser object.
I tried to uninstall the “UiPath.Core.Activities” - did not change anything.
I closed ALL processes related to UiPath and restarted machine and started UiPath up again - did not change anything.
The only option i have at this point, is to recreate all of my processes, which would be quite time consuming.
Does anyone have a fix for this?
Can you roll UiPath back to previous version?
Can you disable automatic updates?
Thanks in advance.
