When starting the UiPath Assistant, the following error is shown. Cannot Read property --- of null
Root-cause : A corrupted process-info.json or agent-settings.json file could cause this issue.
A product fix is planned for 20.10, to recover the file when corrupted.
Workaround available :
- Close/Quit the assistant
- Go to %appdata%\uipath and take the backup of the agent-settings.json file
- After taking the backup, delete the same.
- Start the assistant again
Note : This will delete all our assistant options like hotkeys, position, etc (not the connection to Orchestrator), so we shoud not skip step 3, if that information is needed.
Perform the same steps as above with process-info.json file at location : %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\UiPath
