UiPath.UiAutomation.Activities Package MDAC Application Compatibility

Hi all

I am trying to automate an MDAC application with UI automation. A part of the application’s window seems to be recognised as Internet Explorer by UiPath. When I use an application or browser scope, this part of the application is recognised as its own window when generating a selector. This in itself is not a problem but none of the selectors within it validate unless I roll the UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities package back to version 20.10.12 or older. If I try to use a newer version of this package, selectors are generated but they won’t validate. They do validate if I copy them into a process that uses an older version.

Is there any way to get the selectors working with a newer version of the UiPath.UiAutomation.Activities package?

Thanks in advance
