I’m trying to set up a robot to wait for an image to vanish on a remote session and then proceed with it’s next jobs. Here is the basic operation I’m using.
Connect to RDP
Run a batch file that starts an MS Access DB (this modifies some data in a text file, no issues here)
When the Access DB disappears from the screen, it closes the remote session.
If the Access image does not disappear, it gathers a screenshot and sends an email as an error catch.
The Access database produces errors very infrequently (due to files being open or some other very uncommon event). So, I don’t need it to catch every error and resolve, only the image since human intervention will be necessary anyway (at this point).
The problem I’m having is that the Wait image Vanish activity never seems to know when the image vanishes. Find Image works and is able to identify MS Access when it open, but Wait Image Vanish always times out. I was able to successfully set up a try catch if the wait image times out, but that’s not an ideal solution since it always times out.
How can I get this to work? Is there a better way to catch an error during a remote session? How can I set up my robot so that it continues after the MS Access DB finishes?
