Windows10 Enterpise UiPath v 2016.2.6253 crashes & exceptions


#1

I’m new to UiPath, but finding it difficult to learn as it is showing a lot of run time errors. Nothing is written to the event logs.

When first double clicking the icon to load, at the splash screen it says:
“It seems that the application failed to start correctly the last time it was started.” It offers to reset the data. This message shows if I reset or just choose continue.

Everytime, it then asks for the licence. I choose “free” and enter my email address. This results in:
“The program or background process quit unexpectedly. Would you like to send information to the deevloper?” I choose yes.

I open a small, existing project I have created and wait a few seconds. I get a popup with an exception, which from the logs says:

[ERROR] [Orchestra.LogHelper] [1] Application crashed | [TypeLoadException] System.TypeLoadException: Cannot resolve dependency to Windows Runtime type 'Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer'. When using the ReflectionOnly APIs, dependent Windows Runtime assemblies must be resolved on demand through the ReflectionOnlyNamespaceResolve event.

   at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler)

This exception is not shown in a popup, but is in the log just after the above popup shows:

If I run UiPath as Administrator, when getting a licence it shows a popup error:

Activation failed with error: -4308
Error description: SOAP Connection timed out
License status: Undetermined
Device ID:
Computer:
User Name:

The only security products I have are Malwarebytes Anti-ransomeware and Microsoft Windows Defender. Disabling malwarebytes had no effect, but if I disabled defender it was able to go through the activation without an error. Even so, if I close UiPath and then reopen it, it repeats the “get license” sequence and all that is mentioned above.

Any ideas on how to get it working on WIndows 10 Enterprise?

Hi Dominic,

Have you solved your problem? I am having the same exact problem. My computer details are as follows:

Uipath community edition
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
.Net 4.7 Framework.
