The WinAutomation Console freezes when trying to access the "Logs" tab, with the below error.



The issue typically occurs when the "Logs.dat" file's volume has passed a threshold. To resolve this, proceed as below:

  • Close the WinAutomation Console.
  • Launch "services.msc" and stop the "WinAutomation Server" and "WinAutomation Machine Agent" services.
  • Navigate to "C:\ProgramData\Softomotive\WinAutomation". Either rename, keep a backup, or delete the "Logs.dat" file.
  • From "services.msc", start the "WinAutomation Server" and "WinAutomation Machine Agent" services.
  • Launch the WinAutomation Console.


Finally, to prevent the "Logs.dat" file's volume from increasing too much, you could consider using the "Archive" feature of WinAutomation.
