UI explorer problems


I am having difficulties using selectors. If I use indicate element in the explorer it says its valid. However, as soon as I hit save and reopen the explorer the selector is suddenly invalid.

I am also having problems running programs that do run by my teammates when they run it on their computers.

I am not sure why either of these things are happening any suggestions on how to fix them are highly appreciated.

Based on the source code there should be a unique id:
