Selectors not working on Mac VM



Scenario: The client is using a Mac, running Windows 7 VM, and when I try to use the recorder tool for the notepad app, each individual button in the toolbar (file / edit / format / etc) is not selectable. Instead, the selector only highlights the entire toolbar. Is there a way to fix this?

Steps to reproduce: Run the recorder tool on the notepad application

Current Behavior: The entire toolbar is one selector

Expected Behavior: The toolbar buttons should be split out into multiple selectors

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version: Most recent version of Studio, downloaded 2 days ago

Last stable behavior: Never
Last stable version:
OS Version: Windows 7
Others if Relevant: (workflow, logs, .net version, service pack, etc):


Presuming UiPath is installed on the VM as you can’t run it on a Mac? What software are you using to run the VM?


Yes, UiPath is installed on the VM. It is VMWare Fusion Version 8.0.0


Do we have any ideas?


Possible causes:

  1. Do you have update KB2533623?
  2. UIElements - Quorum Land Onshore
  3. When you run studio and notepad you should run them with the same elevation rights (both admin or both user)


There could be some trick with mac in this case


you have to keep your mac safe
