UIElement is no longer valid



Hi @Robo1,

Can you please explain your situation ? I have been using the UiPath nearly 7 moths. I didn’t meet this situation. I have done so many robot projects in web and window. I try to solve your problem… Here you have many people to help you.



Hello balupad14,
sure thing.
Mainly my robot is loosing track of the element. I have tried setting “Never” in “Website Data Settings” > “Check for newer versions of stored pages” (IE 11) as others recommended and will see if this help.

I need simply to download a file and its crash, one day I set it and everything is ok but the other day I need to show UI Path the element again. After logging, I need to choose an element (called token in inspector) which is a piece of image. In selector it is …=IMG’>, have tried multiple solutions and each seems to be unreliable.

There are more problems along the way but the biggest is that each day it needs some sort of the elements to be pinpointed again.



Hi @Robo1,

I understand the concept . But I need more detail . Can you share some screen shots or a link to analysis .
or share the selector.



Same issue please help…


The token I told you changes in periodically. At now it doesn’t shows up so as long as process is set “continue on error” this part works. But I show you latter I want to compare links.

I cannot set in settings “Never” in “Website Data Settings” > “Check for newer versions of stored pages”
because one of the pages doesn’t want to start showing dialog: “Link expired”.

Also I have problem with choosing the folder to “save as…” UiPath is sometimes loosing track of the “ToolbarWindows32” but if its not it doesnt want to open the path after “type into” showing “cannot opent this location with this program. Try to use different location”. Maybe because I want to save it in NAS. No idea.


It is in Polish


Here you are balupad14.

Image identificator looked the same two days ealier;

img style=“width: 500px; height: 100px;” alt=“Jesteś agentem/pośrednikiem lub pracownikiem TUiR WARTA lub pracownikiem TUnŻ WARTA? (Logowanie przez identyfikator zamiast tokena)” src="/image/image_gallery?uuid=7ef2cdaf-ca06-4db9-b2ef-8b377ce03526&groupId=10157&t=1365753151523"

In UiPath the selector looks like this

Any ideas?


Hi @Robo1,

first I come to the download path. Instead of navigating the folder . you can specify the path directly.
You have an custom activity called “Download File” to download the file into the folder. that I have mention here. Normally we don’t navigate the directory to save the file.

Note : in the filepath property you have specify the full path like “C:\temp\4221525.xlsx”



Hi @Robo1,

The second one. I am not sure , It will not show like as you mentioned. May be site can be updated. But I want to know the purpose of this. Are you trying to get link ?.

Still you are facing problem ?

I can able to find out the site that you are trying.



Hi balupad14

So I need to rewrite the URL i this field? I cannot simply copy it and paste. Moreover I need to login to this link first everytime before I download it. Second The file is changing over a period of time. It is a great idea but i don’t believe its gonna work…
