Suddenly problems with getting windows etc.
Has anyone experienced this?:
All of the sudden my robots have stopped working (they have run thousands of times without any problems) - it seems that they are no longer able to use the "Window"-actions or if the are, it can take up to several hours to "Get Window" or "Set Window State" (see screenshot) - even if the action is "set to fail after 8 seconds"...
The problem is, that the robots are working fine as before on my collegues' PCs..
The problem is not persistent - but the process only runs maybe 1 out of 10 times without problems...
I have tried to re-install Winautomation.
As a fellow customer, I would say ....
Three must have been a software change to your machine that was not implemented on your colleagues machines.
Suggest some detective work like below and if still issue open a support ticket.
If you find the issue, let us all know what the cause was.
1. Try Re-booting your machine
2. Perhaps, you Windows was upgraded Win 7 to Win 10, Server 2012 to 2016, etc
Or, your machine received a windows service pack upgrade and not the other machines
.... Major operating system changes will most likely requires recapturing of windows actions - UI selectors.
3. Anti-virus - real time monitoring causing an issue ?
4. You installed another system tray - application that is causing a conflict.
I also encountered the same problem
