I have similar problem.

Launching new chrome opens  chrome browser but action in WinAutomation can't recognize that and throws exception

Similarly attaching to existing browser, even though web browser is opened, action in WinAutomation can't recognize it and throws exception that there is no chrome instance opened.

I use WinAutomation 8.0.3.
