I’m unsure what has changed on my system, but any ideas would be helpful.
I was developing a patch at the end of the day some time last week. Opening UiPath again the next day, I sought to continue development to find that none of my selectors were validating. I thought it was just a bug and that regenerating the selector would cause it to start working again (I’ve experienced this before), however this was not the case.
Generating a selector (using the “click to select element” tool) would result in an empty string being returned. Using UiExplorer, I noticed that the selector editor window appeared to be in an uninitialized state.
I can select a window and drill down to a particular element in the visual tree, however attempting to build a selector for it is completely nonfunctional.
I have been able to get around this by using a different machine in the mean time, however this is greatly hindering my ability to build and test processes.
In order to try to resolve the issue, I have:
- Tried using UiExplorer instead of the standard dialog.
- Attempted a repair on my UiPath install.
- Uninstalled UiPath, rebooted, and installed fresh.
This makes me think that this is actually something wrong with Windows itself. I have tried running
sfc /scannow, however this did not find any issues.
What should I look at next? Google has been rather unhelpful with this issue.
