UiPath Studio Hangs after Sequence Completes



Scenario: I developed a sequence that reads a computer generated excel report and transforms (flattens) the data and saves as a csv. After the sequence runs, Studio hangs. When I look in the performance monitor, it appears that there are UiStudio processes that are deadlocked. I eventually have to kill UiPath Studio from Task Manager.


Steps to reproduce:

Current Behavior: After the sequence ends, Studio hangs and has to be killed from Task Manager

Expected Behavior: After the sequence ends, Studio becomes usable for further development

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version: Studio 2017.1.6498 Community Edition

Last stable behavior:
Last stable version:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit .NET 4.0.30319.42000
Others if Relevant: (workflow, logs, .net version, service pack, etc):

Getting "System.ServiceModel.CommunicationException:There was an error writing to the pipe:Unrecognized error 232 (0xe8)." while using invoke workflow

Hi, I’m having this issue too – the automation ended, but the robot seems to still be running:

After I push the STOP button:

Any ideas? Thanks!


Sorry, here’s the screen shot after I pushed the STOP button:


that means that the Robot crashed or got stuck for different reasons and Studio was not “informed”. Lets find out why :slight_smile:


I had similar situation with terminal Uipath connector.
If connector hang up, whole Uipath stopped. Only kill Connector process start Uipath
