The following problem happened to me once, yesterday.
The robot was Windows Task Scheduled to run at 7:30 in the morning. It ran well, and got the job done mostly, except for the last 2 activities (send email, log message). When I looked at the computer at about 10am, because I hadn’t got any email, the UiRobot.exe icon was still in the taskbar, and the robot was running in the UiRobot trey icon. Then I manually ended the execution, and only then the ‘execution ended’ line appeared in the log file.
I have the Main Flowchart in a Try Catch block, and a Send Email -activity in the Catch section. So whenever there is an error, there should be an email message sent. This time, there was not even any email sent.
How the robot got stuck like this? It didn’t even get an error. Is there anything that could prevent this from happening in the future?
