Yes I’m also facing same kind of issue…

Hi @kaluri @Nagaraj479

Could you try to update the UiAutomation and System activity packages and give it a try?


Hi @loginerror,

Thanks for the solution provided :+1::heart_eyes:



All my packages are up to date. I still experience this issue. I even tried uninstall & install again.

Hi @libinv,

Check the option of Include Prerelease. Search for the UiAutomation and System activity packages and Update. It will work :+1:

Pre-release also has the same versions (19.2.0). I did try them but it still crashes.


Pre-release has updated version of 19.3.0 beta release. Attached screenshot for your reference.

I am unable to see the beta release you pasted in the comment

However, I was able to get it working by downgrading UIPath.UIAutomation.Activities from v19.2.0 to v19.1.0

I noticed this behaviour after the 2019.2 update, and I believe they updated UIPath.UIAutomation.Activities to v19.2.0 which is causing the issue.

Yes, This feature works with the version 19.1.0 and 19.3.0 (beta release). Wait until the package gets updated and you can verify the feature. If you feel I solve the solution, please mark it as solved :grinning:
