UiPath Assistant Shows Error "Cannot Read property --- of null"

When starting the UiPath Assistant, error fix for "Cannot Read property --- of null " .

Root Cause: A corrupted process-info.json or agent-settings.json file could cause this issue.


Approach #1:

  1. Close / Quit the assistant
  2. Go to %appdata%\uipath and take the backup of the agent-settings.json file
  3. After taking the backup, delete the same.
  4. Start the assistant again

Note: This will delete all our assistant options like hotkeys, position, etc (not the connection to Orchestrator), so we should not skip step 3, if that information is needed.

Approach #2: Perform the same steps as above with process-info.json file at location : %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\UiPath

Note : This has been fixed in UiPath v 20.10.
