Receive error during Get Attribute activity. HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component

I am receiving an error when trying to perform the Get Attribute activity. Error: HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component. The bot clicks on a “Save” button and then goes to a Do While loop to check the status of the save button. The button becomes disabled after you hit “Save”. Once the save is complete, the button becomes available again. The reason why I use the loop is to check the status of the button. The bot cannot move to the next activity until the save process is completed. When the button is no longer disabled the bot can proceed. The vendor has upgraded the application and now the bot fails at this activity. What I noticed now is an icon appears over the save button, which was not there before the upgrade. I believe this is causing the error. Blocking the bot from seeing the attributes while the page refreshes? Nothing else on the page is changing to tell when the save has completed. Is there a way to tell when the browser is is done refreshing the page? I really don’t want to use the Delay activity because the amount of time it takes to save is not consistent enough to use. Any suggestions?
