Hey @pkumar
I just tried to click on ‘Status’ & ‘Scan for Threats’ links in my system and it worked perfectly fine.

Have you installed Java Plugin?
Whats the issue you are facing? Are you not able to identify those elements?
Did you try using an ‘Attach Browser’ container and then adding those click activities inside that.?
I would suggest you to cross check your selectors and make sure they are dynamic enough to identify those elements everytime you open it.

Let me know if its till not working.

Thanks,
Rammohan B.

2. Unable to identify the elements on symantec popup.
3.I have tried using “Attach Window” container.
I am not sure, how to configure selectors dynamically. Can you please help me to identify elements in symantec popup.

Hey @pkumar,

Here are some selectors:

Attach Browser:
"<wnd app='symcorpui.exe' title='* - Symantec Endpoint Protection' />"
(For Symantec app, title changes everytime you click on any link and if your selector is not dynamic enought it would not identify the elements inside your container until and unless title is changes. Hence to achieve this, selector has been made dynamic by replacing the initial word with ‘*’)

Click for Scan for threats:
"<wnd title='Scan for Threats' />"

Click for Status:
"<wnd title='Status' />"

Attached is the workflow with which i am successfully able to perform actions on Synamtec Endpoint Protection.
SymantecClicks.xaml (10.0 KB)

Let me know if its still not working.

Note: Also make sure that you are not using full selectors for click activities again. It may contain the titles with different value which may not work if you wont make it dynamic.

Thanks,
Rammohan B.

Hi Rammohan,
Thanks a lot for valuable information !
I have followed the same.
Attach Browser:
<wnd cls='SymCorpUIMainWindowClass' title='* - Symantec Endpoint Protection'/>
Just FYI: If i use app=‘SymCorpUI.exe’ instead of cls=‘SymCorpUIMainWindowClass’, I am getting exception like “SelectorNotFoundException”.

Click for Scan for Threats:
<wnd title='Scan for Threats' />

I am not getting any error , but unable click on “Scan for Threats”. Can you please help me on this.

Below screenshot represents workflow.

That’s Strange. Just wanted to check again, are you able to automate any other desktop applications with uipath studio?

Thanks,

Just now i have opened, given some information and saved the text file (Notepad) , used Attach window for click on file and save links. Working fine.

In Symantec application case ,Uipath Explorer unable to validate the selectors for “Symantec window” and as well as for “Scan for Threats” link with in the window. I felt it might be the reason. Can you please provide any solution.

Below screenshot represents the same.

Ok. So again. Your workflow works for me. Can you try by adding a ‘Highlight’ & ‘Find Activity’ activity right before the click activity for ‘Scan for Threats’ with the same selector as ‘Click’.

Thanks,
