"Robot does not exist" Error

When I’m working with UiPath Studio, I suddenly get an error saying “Robot does not exist” when I try to run something. Uninstalling and reinstalling UiPath Studio solves the problem for a while, but it keeps cropping up. Anyone know how to solve this issue?

Is your studio connected to Orchestrator ?

I actually first get a message that “Orchestrator is disconnected” before that error, but I don’t know how to reconnect it.

I think you are getting error becoz your robot got disconnected from orchestrator.
