I had the same issue too.
When you create a blank task at the beginning, click on “Show advanced options”.
There, under compatibility, you can choose “windows - legacy” from the drop-down before creating the task.
Hope it helps…
This a great practice to understand how to work with UI Automation. In the beginning, I was stuck with the technique of selecting the anchor. However, going through the community’s posts gave me the ideas to get on track and complete the exercise.
I didn’t use the template document even though it was listed in the Robot Path for this practice activity. Using the template doesn’t make sense. I needed to download the filled out spreadsheet from the RPA Challenge website and then use the information from that spreadsheet to enter information into the fields on the RPA Challenge website. When I tried to insert the template spreadsheet as per the Robot Path, my automation didn’t work. When I took it out, my automation worked.
