Hi @irene0227,

The robot is running as attended. i didnt set it to any group…

Hello @irene0227 ,

Can you share a screenshot with the error that appear?
I remember when doing Outlook automation, I received 2-3 errors because of the programatic access and so on…



Sorry for the late reply.

Below is the screenshot of the error.


Try to run UiPath as Administrator to see if this is solved.
Anyway, a very strange error.

Outlook is installed on that machine, no?



Thanks for your reply.

I found out that if i open the outlook apps and try to execute the send outlook mail message activity, then it will thrown this error.

So in order to prevent the error occur , will need to close outlook first.

Thank you.
