When a user (or admin) runs WinAutomation Console/Process Studio as an administrator, the following actions may fail with the following error when executed within the Process Designer:
- Launch Excel
- Launch Outlook
It has been noticed that they run fine out of the Process Designer and they also run fine anywhere when Console/Studio is not run as admin.
The above behavior has been reported when the machine is in a cloud provider and it is using a shared installation of MS Office.
Installing Office locally resolves this issue.
