uiPath Studio 18.4 Cannot find the UI element corresponding to this selector

studio
bug

#1

My desktop application works perfectly with 18.2 and when I’m trying it with 18.4. I found out that uiPath unable to recognize individual ui elements when trying to select them

What changed? why Anchors unable to capture mouse location and always show up as invalid ?

It’s very basic Windows applications, selectors always fail to select ui elements.

Same exact setup on 18.2 works great with no problems.

Right-click and open the image with new tab for larger image display.

Please note that both machines have UAC settings set as default & Both uiPath apps running under “Run as Administrator”

Can you use image based activities like “Click image” ?

Hi @akamali

Could you provide screenshots of the particular applicaton and more details about your process? It should normally not be the case that a processes stops working with the update.

If you cannot share those on the forum, you can try contacting our Technical Support for more assistance.
