In order for ProcessRobot/WinAutomation to have access to the elements within a Java application, the following steps should be performed:
- Navigate to this link and select the offline setup file according to your operating system to get the latest Java for your computer.
- Once the download is complete, install Java.
- 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, try to capture a control from the "Java Control Panel" window.
WinAutomation/ProcessRobot should be able to "see" and capture all the controls from that window.
*Use "View by: Large/Small icons" to see the Java settings.
Tip: Bot WA/PR and the Java app should be running with the same privileges. Either both should be running as admin or none.
