In order for ProcessRobot/WinAutomation to have access to the elements within a Java application, the following steps should be performed:

  1. Navigate to this link and select the offline setup file according to your operating system to get the latest Java for your computer
  2. Once the download is complete, install Java.
  3. Navigate to "Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see" and enable the option "Enable Java Access Bridge".


To verify that everything is correctly configured:

Navigate to Control Panel > Java* and using the Process Designer of Process Studio (ProcessRobot)/WinAutomation Console(WinAutomation), try to capture a control from the "Java Control Panel" window. 

WinAutomation should be able to "see" and capture all the controls from that window.


*Use "View by: Large/Small icons" to see the Java settings.
