Project no longer compiling

I’m getting a weird error when trying to compile and run my project, I’m new to UiPath and can’t figure out what’s wrong. Any help is highly appreciated.

When trying to compile I get the following error:

Compilation failed or was cancelled."

And it gives me the following log:
"Unexpected error has occurred during the library compilation process:
The assembly compilation returned the following errors:

  • Unused extern alias.
  • Unnecessary using directive.
  • Unused extern alias.
  • Unused extern alias.
  • Unused extern alias.
  • Unused extern alias.
  • Unnecessary using directive.
  • Unnecessary using directive.
  • Unused extern alias.
  • Combined length of user strings used by the program exceeds allowed limit. Try to decrease use of string literals."

It feels like this started happening after I changed some activity names, but not entirely sure.
My main.xaml file exceeds the 10Mb limit of the forum: WeTransfer - Send Large Files & Share Photos Online - Up to 2GB Free

Thanks in advance for any help :slight_smile:

The error is originating from click activities and their anchors. For some reason, having multiple click activities with an anchor produces the above-mentioned error. Was able to get around the issue, by removing the anchors, not optimal but it runs. Still don’t know why this happens though.
