Is it resolved?

Try using attach window before this selector’s activity and make this selector partial selector where you can remove the parent attributes of window since you would have already done that for attach window selector.

If it doesn’t work then as well try to check if this is working for some other browser.

Thank you all

How this issue was resolved finally? I’m getting the same error however it used be a working code earlier. It has started giving me error in my application recently. Basically it is an file dialog box which appears clicking and upload button. Earlier UI path was able to enter the file name in the ‘File Name:’ dialog box but now it is not able to identify the element and fails.

Interestingly it is failing in orchestrator not in UI Path Studio. Any inputs would be appreciated.

I got the same issue. Trying to Click into Filename for the filepath:

The Selector issue is strange since in attended/Studio I see the selectors as valid, however the suggested selectors from error message in an unattended run are completely different. The exception screenshot shows a blank screen (using RE Framework, just a blank desktop without chrome open)
