I am stuck in a very strange situation here. Please help.
My process is,
Take first value from Excel.
Go to Website A. Via IE
Navigate to a Page.
Search the value in WebPage and Download all the documents related to it.
Take the next value, Loop back and perform steps 1 to 4.
Now, whenever Bot reaches to step 4, I see a IE download window pop up. I perform my desired work there and download has completed.
Now, just after download window all the activities following it (step 1 to 4) slows down drastically.
No Error, just the activities wait for exact one minute and perform well.
I had looked over the forum and found threads on it.
WaitForReady = NONE. - Not desired because I loose the actual aim of it. My bot should logically wait for element to appear and then do the activity. Making all the activites None fails it.
Cannot use Other Browser - Business Requirement
Element Exists Activity - Logically using Element Exists activity for all the activities to be performed is very bad designing.
What exactly is the root cause? why does this happen?
UiPath - 2018.4.3 Enterprise Edition
IE - IE11
PC - Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit
Let me if you need any more data.
Looking for urgent help.
Some activities have a delay before or after property, they haven’t been accidentally filled by chance? Not a great suggestion but just in case!
Otherwise i’m not sure what the cause could be, are the timeout properties on your activities on the default value?
Also if it’s a download link in IE I find it a bit easier to use the http request activity, you only need fill the endpoint and resourcepath properties for downloading item. You don’t have to bother with any download menu’s then. That could help quicken your process but won’t remove your issue.
Here I see Edge is taking a lot of memory. Anyway you have 87% taken and I’m pretty sure that PageFile is starting to dump memory at this level. If you’re on HDD then disk is also starting to work intensively and whole computer is getting slower and slower.
Maybe try to check it with other browser?
No luck. Actually the download button does not have a download link attribute to copy and send in the http request.
When I click on download, it generates a dynamic link everytime and then it downloads.
