UiPath.UiFactory method not found error message

In order to keep all our processes updated and to avoid any outdated packages from being included, every other Friday I’ve been checking the Manage Packages window for updates to any packages I have in my process. Today I did one of these core packages updates and ran into a problem with one of our bots. This is the first time since I’ve started these bi-weekly package updates that I’ve seen an error that wasn’t related to the business process.

First, here’s a list of all the packages this project is using and their versions.

Here is the activity that is throwing the error and its details.

And here is the actual error message that comes up when debugging and opening an instance with the current definition (circled).

I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling the UiPath.System and UiPath.UiAutomations packages as well as downgrading them a couple of versions but it kept producing the same error messages. I couldn’t find any other articles anywhere that covered this specific issue so here I am.

Does anyone have any idea what this means and how I can mitigate this? This process is responsible for a workload that can get backlogged pretty quickly if not ran so time is of the essence.

Thank you

Hello @Kyle_Shahenian ,

We had the same problem with a robot with the same problem (open browser via library), and aftewards we couldn’t even use a open browser.

We tried the same things as you did, upgrade, downgrade, remove project an create new, etc.

The solution was removing the package “UIPATH” with version from the dependencies and it started working without problems.

See if this solves your problem as well.

Thank you Luis, that seemed to have fixed the issue with this one process and another process that had the same browser problem. Marking as solution.
